Augustine Day by Day - August 8 - Prayer and Temptation

"Without doubt, we must pray lest we enter into temptation. This is denied by those who claim that God's aid is not necessary for humankind to keep free from sin and that the human will that merely knows the law is sufficient. Such persons should certainly be kept out of the hearing of everyone and should be rejected by the unanimous voice of all."

-- Human Justice, 44


Prayer. Lord Jesus, you suffered for us not for yourself. You bore the punishment for no fault of your own, to abolish both the fault and the punishment.

-- Sermon 136, 6

August 8

By His stripes we are healed. Freed we are in Christ both from the power and penalty of sin. Hallelujah!
