Romans 6:12-18; Psalm 124; Luke 12:39-48

Don’t let sin reign

The road to holiness is a daily battle between our bodily passions and the grace of freedom offered us by Jesus. St Augustine wrote: “Our pilgrim life here on earth cannot be without temptation, for it is through temptation that we make progress, and it is only by being tempted that we come to know ourselves. … Do you notice that Christ has been tempted and fail to notice that he overcame the temptation? Recognize your own self, tempted in him and conquering also in him”.

Lord, grant me your freedom to resist temptations.
