“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
When you face temptation, remember it is not a sin to be tempted. Temptation to sin is not sin.
If temptation were a sin, then Jesus would be a sinner. For Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.”
Jesus was tempted in all points like as we are yet without sin. Jesus felt what you feel. He was just as much a man as though He were not God at all, and He was as much God as though He were not man at all. He was the God-Man, and praise God, Jesus never sinned though He knew those temptations.
Are you facing a temptation today that you feel no one has ever faced? Turn to Jesus and He will meet you there.
