The Lord knows how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust under punishment for the day of judgment. 2 Peter 2:9 (NKJV)

Part of the deception of sin is the lie that you’re in too deep to ever get out. You can feel so dirty, so soiled, so mired in its clutches that you begin to believe sincerely that there is no way out for you. With each small step toward freedom that you take, your feet seem to slide backward even more.

You must cling to God’s power to free you from the bondage of sin. Self-effort is useless, and your human abilities of reason and emotion are clouded by the consequences of the very sin you are trying to escape.

God knows how to rescue you from the temptations you face right now. Through the power of Jesus Christ, you don’t have to say yes to what you know is wrong. That is the liberating message of the Cross!
