For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin.
Here’s a difference to think about. Jesus knew no sin. How freaky is that? How extra-ordinary? How unlike us, utterly unlike us.
Yet He knew sin, he knew temptation, more than we could ever imagine. Jesus could say no. He knows the consequence too. What a gift it would be to not have sin in our life.
Yet, he knows the challenges we face. He knows the temptations. He can give us strength, but can’t give us enough to always say no. He offers salvation though.
If you can’t say no to sin, say yes to forgiveness and more strength than you have now.
