First, we know that temptation is from the devil. God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone (James 1:13).
Jesus wasn’t afraid or “too good” to be with the sinners and the outcasts of society.
He preached the Gospel to the poor. He touched and healed the lepers, the lame, the blind, the deaf, the crazy (the demon possessed) etc.
He touched them, and He let them touch Him (Mark 5:25-32).
One the hardest fights of this life is to consistently deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow after God (Matthew 16:24).
One of the things I hate most in this world is to sin against God. I.hate.it. I.hate.it. I.hate.it.
I’m not going to be too busy for You…
Love is everything My Word proclaimed it be centuries upon centuries ago…
Love. Redemption. Reconcilation.
When did My name become a byword?
A curse on the tongue of My creation,
The ones I created in My image,
The ones I sent My only, begotten Son to save.
I would tell you that I love you,
So that you would turn away from your destruction,
The sin that pulls you to the grave.
But I know even that perfect declaration would be of little consequence.
Because you don’t know Me;
Therefore, you don’t know Love.
God is love.
