Today´s reading:
OT: Lamentations 4-5
NT: Hebrews 2
Ps: Psalm 103
Pr: Proverbs 26:23

Today´s notable verse:

17 For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Heb. 2:17-18 (NIV)

Since Jesus faced the very same temptations we face - and defeated those temptations, both in resisting their influence and in overcoming their power through His death, burial, and resurrection - He truly is able to help us who are being tempted. What a wonderful blessing it is to serve a High Priest who is able to help us so intimately!
