New York Knicks sensation Jeremy Lin has stayed in close contact with his pastor from California.

Rev. Stephen Chen expressed his concerns, that "Lin-Sanity" may involve temptations that may be hard to resist.

"It would be foolish to say that I'm not concerned with the temptations that are out there," Chen tells the New York Post. "The Scripture talks about the devil lying in wait like a lion waiting to devour. All Christians would be foolish to underestimate the devil."

Chen, who is a pastor for the Redeemer Bible Fellowship, also gave Lin some advice.

“I did remind him of the gospel and for him to continue to set his vision upon Christ,” said Chen.

All people react differently to being put in a situation such as the one Jeremy Lin is in now.  Things are going really well, but let's not forget that he's in New York.

A few bad games and it might be, "What have you done for me lately?"

For now though, things are still Lin-sane.
