Temptations and the Rescue

January 6, 2014

“The temptations never cease, but more importantly, Jesus will never abandon us.”[1]

We live in a world saturated with temptations of all sorts. There are financial temptations and sexual temptations. There are temptations to gather possessions and temptations to eat things that are bad for you. Each of us battles with temptations daily. And while the individual temptations may be different for each person, there is a unity in this struggle because we are all in this together.

What we fail to realize as we surrender to our temptations is Jesus is there with us. His grace and mercy will allow Him to stand next to us and never abandon us. Even when we are at our worst, He still has a hand of rescue outstretched to us. He knows what it is like to be tempted. He knows the pressure. He understands the issues. More importantly, He wants to rescue you!

No one is beyond His rescue. Are you willing to reach for His hand?
