Every one of us cannot deny it. We sin, we commit sin, no matter how hard we try, how careful we are there are times we are not even aware we already committed sin or there are also times that even we do know that it is sin we still do it. Even Apostle Paul struggling with these things as he have written in his Epistle to the Romans
Romans Chapter 7:24 “O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?”
Even I, I do hate how this fleshly body so weak and vulnerable. Sin is living inside of me warring against the spiritual man inside me. Everyday they are warring against each other.
Romans 7:23 ” But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.”
But as the preachers in my Church have already preached it many times., the one will win is the one that you are feeding. If I feed my flesh and just let these fleshly desires do what they want of course! the flesh will win, but if I want the Spiritual man inside me win, I need to feed it! How? The Bible clearly tells us that we should always seek God and Pray and even fasting because the Devil is just waiting for opportunity to destroy us.
I Peter 5:8 “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
We need to take the whole Armor of God in order for us to have victory over this wicked things inside and outside us. Apostle Paul written in his epistle to the
Ephesians 6:10-18 “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;”
He may not be able to bring us to Hell anymore because no one can pluck us in the hands of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
Romans 8:38-39 “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
But what will he gonna do is to destroy our life here on earth so that we won’t be fruitful and not be able to bring more believers to Christ. Apostle Paul in his epistle to the Romans in chapter 7 talks about how the Spiritual Man and Fleshly Man inside us always having war but in the next chapter 8 Apostle Paul talks about the Grace of God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ how He hath saved us from the condemnation to come which is in our flesh.
Romans 8:1-2 “There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.”
Yeah! what a victory in Jesus we have.
Romans 8:37 “Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.”
If we just confess and ask Him earnestly to help us conquer this battle that is inside He is Just and Faithful to help us not to commit it again and forgive us.
I John 1:9 ” If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”
And Let No Evil Remain
Deuteronomy 13:17 “And there shall cleave nought of the cursed thing to thine hand: that the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and show thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers.”
Israel must conquer idolatrous cities and destroy all the spoil, regarding all that had been polluted by idolatry as an accursed thing to be burned with fire. Now, sin of all sorts must be treated by Christians in the same manner. We must not allow a single evil habit to remain. It is now war to the knife with sins of all sorts and sizes, whether of the body, the mind, or the spirit. We do not look upon this giving up of evil as deserving mercy, but we regard it as a fruit of the grace of God, which we would on no account miss.
When God causes us to have no mercy on our sins, then He has great mercy on us. When we are angry with evil, God is no more angry with us. When we multiply our efforts against iniquity, the Lord multiplies our blessings. The way of peace, of growth, of safety, of joy in Christ Jesus will be found by following out these words: “There shall nought of the cursed thing cleave to thine hand.” Lord, purify me this day. Compassion, prosperity, increase, and joy will surely be given to those who put away sin with solemn resolution.
