For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Prescription For Trying Times
Here’s the scary thing: we-humans really get to choose. We can choose to sin, even after we belong to Jesus. But here’s the amazing thing: we can also choose NOT to sin, now. The Holy Spirit gives us that power. We can turn towards, or we can turn away, from our Lord. As humans, we will always be filled by something/someone; we will always be mastered by
something/someone. Our only choice is who/what fills us and who/what masters us.
