1 Corinthians 10:13 – Verse of the Day 4/19/13
After concluding chapter 9 of 1 Corinthians with the image of the Christian life as a race, most of chapter 10 consists of examples from the Old Testament to encourage believers in running that race. This verse is Paul’s conclusion to this section. Just as God provided for Old Testament believers, he continues to do so today, and so we can trust Him and persevere when we are tempted to sin.
Where do you turn when you are tempted to sin? Do you ever feel helpless in the face of such temptation? God promises never to allow us to be tempted beyond what we can bear. He is with us always, and gives us the strength we need to follow Him. Spend some time in prayer thanking God for his presence with us and asking Him to help you be faithful as you rely more and more upon Him.
