"The Son radiates God's own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command," (Hebrews 1:3).
Have you ever considered turning away from Jesus because the temptation and persecution you face are so intense? For those who follow Jesus, there is nowhere else to turn and nowhere else to run. He is greater than our trials. He's greater than our pain. He is greater than anything to which we might run.
If Jesus is God, then he is the only one to whom we can turn. He is more than capable of carrying us through whatever we face.
