10AM 10/6/19 “HIS ORDER” Hebrews 7

Jesus was tempted just as I am. You have heard that many times: have you grasped it? He was tempted by the very same sins that we are. It may be a dark place you are going through, but Jesus went through it before. It is a hard fight you are waging, but Jesus stood face to face with the same enemy. Be of good courage, Christ has borne the load before us, and the blood-stained footsteps of the King of glory may be seen along the road which we travel today. But sweeter than that – Jesus was tempted, but He never sinned. Now since Jesus endured temptations, yet never sinned, so in His power His Church may also cease from sin. Some new believers think that they cannot be tempted without sinning, but there is no sin in being tempted, but there is sin in yielding to temptation. But remember that the Lord Jesus triumphed, and just as He overcame, so shall His Church, because Jesus is the Head. Perhaps we are tempted just now, in order to drive us nearer to Him. Blessed is any wind that blows us into the port of our Savior’s arms.  C.H. Spurgeon
