Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. (Hebrews 2:17-18 ESV)
Hymn ELH 253:4,6 Rise, My Soul, to Watch and Pray
Watch against yourself, my soul,
Lest with grace thou trifle;
Let not self thy thoughts control
Nor God’s mercy stifle.
Pride and sin Lurk within,
All thy hopes to scatter;
Heed not when they flatter.
Therefore let us watch and pray,
Knowing He will hear us
As we see from day to day
Dangers ever near us,
And the end Doth impend–
Our redemption neareth
When the Lord appeareth.
Jesus, my Savior, thank You for overcoming the temptations of this world in my place. Help me to endure and to overcome all my temptations to sin. Amen.
