Most people think of
Thomas Edison as a man who achieved one success after another. The truth is,
some of his experiments turned out to be dead ends; but he was not easily
For example, he tried
hundreds of times, without success, to develop a storage battery. When a friend
sympathized with him over his failure, Edison exclaimed, “But I haven't
failed. I've found 10 thousand ways that don't work!” Eventually, he found
a way that did work.
This is a trying time in
our world and if you are like me, when someone tells me to stay home, there is
something within me that makes me want to go out even more. I often have the
same struggle when it comes to sin in my life.
What the writer of Hebrews
reminds us of is this fact, Jesus is better. In our times of struggle against
sin, we need to remember what Jesus did on the cross for those sins of ours.
When struggles in our lives come, instead of focusing on the struggle, focus on
him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary
and lose heart. 4 In your
struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.
