Hebrews 4:15 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.
Not only do we have our dreadful pain, we have our dreadful sin. Whether we have pain or not, we must resist every temptation. When we resist, God sees our struggle. He knows how much we hurt during the time we resist. God wants us to be holy and devout. What do we want? Do we want to be holy and devout bad enough to exert our will to resist temptation? We must understand we do not resist temptation alone. Christ is with us as we resist. Christ wants us to resist so we can stay closer to Him. When we do not resist temptation, we fall farther and farther away from Him. If we do not resist, we endanger our soul. Fallen far enough, we reject Christ. Fallen far enough, with our rejection of Christ, we have no hope of ever living beyond our earthly life.
