A thought for today..

2Corinthians 4:2 ESV: " But we have renounced disgraceful, underhanded ways. We refuse to practice cunning or to tamper with God's word, but by the open statement of the truth we would commend ourselves to everyone's conscience in the sight of God."
     As Christians we are called to "take the high road." This may be difficult , "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). We must though, we have no choice. Often times we fight temptation, struggle with it, grappling with what sometimes seems like a constant onslaught of spiritual attack. We must constantly keep in mind that the Lord is faithful, he is there for us, and he will not allow us to be overwhelmed, but we must be willing to humble ourselves before the Lord. Humble ourselves? "How" you may be asking yourself.. Call on the name of Jesus, and he WILL drive Satan away, and remember..
1Corinthians 10:13 ESV "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."
