Paul had a major problem. Many of the things he found himself doing were things he didn't want to do. He wanted to preach the gospel; that's probably all that he desired from within him. But his body wanted to sin; he often felt like fornicating, smoking, getting drunk, and doing all kinds of iniquity. To be honest, hundred percent of Believers often feel the same way. As much as they want to please God, they also have a nudge to sin.
Once there's a will, there's a way. Jesus suffered the same temptations, but He never sinned. It wasn't like Joseph didn't want Potiphar's wife, but he knew it would be a shameful thing, and a sin against God. Daniel had a great position, and he could have easily denied God – knowing that it was his obvious way to maintain his position. But he didn't, he preferred to be eaten by a lion than to bow to an idol. If your will is strong enough to please God over sin, God will stand by you – just like he did in the fiery furnace, the lion's den, and the prison.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; THOSE WHO KEEP THEIR LIFE WILL LOSE IT, BUT THOSE WHO LOSE THEIR LIFE FOR CHRIST'S SAKE WILL HAVE IT. Have a most fruitful weekend! In Jesus precious name!
