In Matthew chapter 26, Jesus has found Peter, James and John sleeping when He had asked them to keep watch and pray. In His disappointment after they let Him down during a troubling time, Jesus said:
Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. Matthew 26:41 NIV
A friend pointed out about this scripture that “anytime we choose sin we fail to consider the future.”
I sit so convicted of the ramifications of my sin on my life, but the passage also impressed on me that each time I sin, I fail my Savior as the disciples did.
He is so gracious to us in our mistakes and confessions.
