Take Up Your Cross November 13th 2015

Jesus was tempted to sin just as we are.

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15 KJV)

Jesus Christ truly empathizes with our every human weakness.  Jesus was present a short time upon this earth in a tent of flesh and completely understands from His first-hand perspective the manifold weaknesses of our flesh.  Jesus experienced great spiritual temptation emitting forth from of the god of this world targeting all potential weaknesses, including His eye gate, ear gate, and flesh.  Satan makes a career out of assaulting mankind with his spiritual poisonous darts aimed in our areas of weakness in this world.

Yes, Jesus was tempted with the very same spiritual forces from the god of this world as man contends with today on this earth.  Jesus Christ was tempted in every way, but without ever allowing sin to enter in His life.  Jesus Christ resisted temptation through the supernatural power of God alive and working through Him.  We too can employ His supernatural strength working in our lives too.

We do have access to the supernatural power of God as we sojourn on this earth and God will protect His own spiritual family from the pull of sin that surrounds us on this earth through His supernatural power working in us and through us.  Mankind’s own human strength is weak and wobbly and cannot stand against the tricks and wiles of the god of this world but God’s power has no limit.
