Marsha Musings: An Excuse to Sin? (Hebrews 2:16-18 ESV)

For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham. Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. (Hebrews 2:16-18 ESV)

This is powerful!  Does it give me an excuse to sin?  No!  It should give me an appreciation for Who Jesus is and what He is doing on my behalf. I should not take it for granted and presume upon His grace by flippantly sinning against Him.
