If I'm Tempted, Is That a Sin?October 1, 2018 Save Article
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
When you face temptation, remember it is not a sin to be tempted. Temptation to sin is not sin.
If temptation were a sin, then Jesus would be a sinner, because Hebrews 4:15 says, “For we have not a 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.”
Jesus was tempted like as we are. Jesus felt what you feel. He was just as much a man as though He were not God at all, and He was as much God as though He were not man at all. He was the God-Man, and praise God, Jesus never sinned, though He knew those temptations. He faced in His manhood and in His humanity the temptations you face. And He is touched. He can sympathize with you, for He knows what you feel. He knows what you face. He knows.
Are you facing a temptation today that you feel no one has ever faced? Turn to Jesus in prayer, and He will meet you there.found this helpful. Did you find it helpful?
