"Frequently it is when we are crushed and devastated that the cross speaks most powerfully to us. The wounds of Christ then become Christ's credentials. The world mocks, but we are assured of God's love by Christ's wounds." --D. A. Carson in "How Long, O Lord?"
"For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted." --Hebrews 2:18, NASB
