Temptation and occasions put nothing into man but only draw out what was in him before
John Owen –
Believers must be brought into conviction of the shame and evil of the carnal state. God brings believers into, what may be called, a second conviction—conviction of a need of deliverance from the power of sin.
What Jesus did for me
As I sat there praying on my knees.
I thought of what Jesus did for me.
How he shed his blood on calvary
So that satan's shackles on man would be broken free.
How could someone so powerful and perfect,
Have so much love and compassion for the unworthy?
This is the love I want to share with others
He said "delight in giving to one another,"
“be quick to forgive"
So I lift my hands in joy for what Jesus did.
his love hung for hours on a tree
so that people all over the world could be set free.
That, my friend, is what Jesus did for me.
