Suffering Temptation

My child,

When he walked on the earth, my son suffered temptation.  He was perfect in every way.  His spirit was absolutely in tune with mine and with my will.  When temptation came his way, he did not give in. However, he did suffer when experiencing temptation. You see, he was so perfect and so right with my will, that even the exposure to sin through temptation made him suffer.

As you grow closer to me, closer to my will and walk with me, then temptation will cause you to suffer as well.  Just the exposure to sin will hurt your heart, because it hurts mine.  I know that you will still give in to temptation, unlike my son, you are not perfect.  You will certainly suffer when you sin, not only due to our damaged relationship, but also because you were not made for sin. You were born for my kingdom.  Hold on as you suffer and remember my son suffered temptation and so much more for you.

There when you suffer,  I AM

Verses for consideration: Hebrews 2:18, Romans 8:14-17, Philippians 1:27-30
