MERCY AND GRACE ARE OURS
For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we, yet without sin. Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need.
Many have said that we cannot be without sin because we have a "sin" nature and will always sin! Yet, they are forgetting the example of Jesus. In all things He is to be for us an example to show us what we can do!
Jesus came as a human being! He was flesh and bone as you and I are. His nature was as ours is. Yet, by the power of the Holy Spirit and by His love for God, He said "no" to sin each time. We can also war against our flesh and take the power of Holy Spirit and say "no" to temptation and sin!
Finally, and most importantly, we can come unto God and ask for His mercy and for His grace to save us in time of our need to resist sin! Grace is that divine strength to do what He would have us to do! We can ask for His mercy, but we can take His grace and overcome! Praise His Name!
