James 1:12-15
"Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death." 
Love Jesus Hate Sin!
Vs. 12 - Faith That Loves
Vs. 13 - God Tempts No One
Vs. 14 - The Source of Temptation
Vs. 15 - The Fruit of Sin (Death) 

How do we conquer sinful desire? With a greater love for God!

“For you, O LORD, are most high over all the earth; you are exalted far above the false gods. O you who love the LORD, hate all that is evil! God preserves the lives of his saints; he delivers them from the hands of the wicked. Light is sown for the righteous, and joy for the upright in heart. Rejoice in the LORD, O you righteous, and give thanks to his holy name!”
