Life in view of the cross is a road rife with temptation. The temptation to boldly accept forgiveness of our sins, but withhold forgiveness from others. The temptation to put our faith in faith and question if we have enough to receive God’s gifts. Yet we are called to have Christ as the object of our faith and not ourselves. Or the temptation to think that we get what we deserve. Yet we don’t deserve forgiveness. We don’t deserve faith. And we don’t deserve a God who would graciously give us all these things, yet he does. Praise, honor, and glory be to him.
Scripture: Luke 17: 1-10
