The Lord’s Prayer:Victory:Recycled revenge:Matthew 6:13a.

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:”
Matthew 6:13a KJV

Because I’m Forgiven

coals of fire

As the expanse of God’s grace twinkled above her, Susanna tossed her dreams of revenge into the smoldering coals. Her arm tingled as she signed the bill of sale and slipped the pie vouchers inside the mail packet. She couldn’t change that scoundrel F.B., but she could choose to react without intent to harm.

“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Hebrews 4:14-16 KJV

Bond Servants and Freemen

Out of the pit.

“And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham. Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.”
Hebrews 2:15-18 KJV

“Does Christ deliver from a true Christian experience? No, indeed. Then the bondage of sin, of which the apostle complains in the seventh of Romans, is not the experience of a child of God, but of the servant of sin. It is to deliver men from this captivity that Christ came, not to deliver us, during this life, from warfare and struggles, but from defeat; to enable us to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, so that we could give thanks unto the Father “who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son,” through whose blood we have redemption.”
