The word that Patter gave us this week for the Scripture Challenge was “temptation”. Right away this word has a negative connotation with it, and I was struggling about what I was going to do with it, until I remembered one of my favorite verses. Everything that we’re tempted with? Jesus was tempted by the same things – and did not give in. So He understands it all! All of it! And like it says, we can approach the throne of grace with confidence – those words are such a comfort to me.
