Our Struggle With Sin

Although it is a fight we cannot win by ourselves, we are not alone.

1 John 3:2

King James Version (KJV)
Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Think about that verse. When He returns we will be rescued from our continual war with sin and 'we shall be like him'! So what do we do in this earthly life until He comes?

Always remember that we are not alone in this struggle. The indwelling power of the Holy Spirit gives us strength to fight our battles each day.

Another thing we must do is surrender our habits to God--the ones that break His heart. The ones that steal our time from Him and prevent us from giving ourselves wholly to Him and obeying His word.

We must not become weary in our day to day battle. Though it is a daily struggle, by putting our trust in Him, we will win!

Have a wonderful Sunday!
