Good Fight of Faith
Sin has touch all of us..DIRECTLY !
It is in our very genes to do what is wrong. I could just here some people say who Not me!
lets not kid ourselves we are all sinful.
Who teaches a baby not even able to creep yet to be selfish ? The mommy ? No not at all.
It is a built in.
who teaches a toddler that this is mine, mine, mine ? No one!well most of the times no one :-)
So what is this sin disease that we have. Romans 7:19
Well to make it simple Sin is simply separation from God.
It is the moment we deny Gods presence,his wanting to be part of our life then sin blossoms like a cancer. whether we want Christ or not its up to us, he respects our choice but peruses us till we deny him. Revelation 3:20.
The outward acts are simply a manifestation of what is in the heart. A heart living apart from God, or it could be a heart that has been with Christ but one who denies Christ overcoming power at the spur of the moment . Matthew 26:34,Mark 14:72,Luke 22:61.
Eve said I got to try this fruit but i must deny what the the Lord says, I must deny him at least for the moment. She separated her self from God.After she separated herself from her husband . Adam said the i will must deny God's command his assurance.
This is what happens in the heart when we are tempted.
When we are faced with a temptation we say "you know what Lord Excuse me for this second /Minute /hour i got to get a taste of this , i got to do this, I will check you back .I know i cannot possible do this with you dominating my thoughts so i must relinquish you for a few then we will get back together again when am trough.
Isn't that what we do most of the times ? I have been there done that , thank God I got rid of the T-shirt.
So in order to fulfill the appetite/the lust /the desire/the selfish heart we must let go of Him be it for a moment or sometimes for days when we cant get the nerve to face God sooner.
If you think you cant live without sinning and you believe in the Bible then you need see these verse
God demands we live without sin:
1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1 Peter 1:14,15,16
14 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Afterward Jesus findeth him in the temple, and said unto him, Behold, thou art made whole: sin no more, lest a worse thing come unto thee.
He empower us to live above sin:
2 Peter 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. 1 john 2:15,16,17
Jude 24 Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
22 But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
How to do it
16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
Habakkuk 2:4 Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written. The just shall live by faith.
Hebrews 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him : for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
What is Faith ?
Greek for Faith is Pistis which means a life saving relationship,its as though your life depends on Jesus . I don't know if you know but it does.
Only when we have a life depending relationship, a sought of life savor dependency.Can we live above first the thoughts of sin which leads to the habits of sin.
So we are expected to live without sin we have established that .Christ coming would change us character wise.Many assume it will change us from mortal to immortality. yes!
The characters we form now are for keepers and is only successfully form with a total day to day dependence on Jesus' power.
light and darkness can not inhabit the same physical space. The absence of light is darkness and conversely when light is introduced in presence of darkness darkness will flee.
If you stay connected to Christ day by day min by min we will have such power to overcome we would wonder "How come this sin don't pull me down no more"
That is"Good Fight of Faith"
Stay faithful we can live without sinning .
