I Can't Believe I Did It Again! Mar 07 2012


"...for I am not practicing what I would like to do but I am doing the very thing I hate." - Romans 7:15

I can't believe it. The very thing I thought I had finally overcome in my life, I did it again. Is that how you feel about a sin or a bad habit you just can't seem to overcome?

You are not alone. All of us are born with a sinful nature, a sinful bent. Sure, we are a creation of God that He said is very good. But we've all been poisoned by sin and are incapable of overcoming this poison on our own strength. The fact is we need a cure, a doctor; we need to be saved from this deadly condition.

The good news is we can be. That's why God became a man in the person of Jesus. He is the Great Physician and came to save us from this deadly poison of sin. He forgives us and gives us the power to overcome what we can't defeat with our own strength.

He provides the Holy Spirit to do what we ought to do by giving us the inner desire and discipline to want to. It's found through faith - faith in Jesus Christ. He gives us the victory that we can never give ourselves.

Yes, report it Nevermind

I'm curious. How many believe that after the "new birth", the Christian is able to deal better with sin?
If anything, I have found myself more under assault, not less. I guess satan wasn't too worried when he had me, but is in a rage that I dare fight back and try to resist sin. He knows it's still my nature?

Yes: And Satan hates Jesus and His Sheep.

"A Mighty Fortress is our God, a Bulwark never Failing...

For still our Ancient Foe doth seek to work us woe? His craft and power are great, and, armed with Cruel Hate...

On earth is not his equal.
----------------------------
Did we in our own strength confide?

Our striving would be Losing...

Were not the Right Man on our side? The Man of God’s own choosing...
-----------------------
Dost ask who that may be?

Christ Jesus, it is He...

Lord Sabaoth, His Name, from age to age the Same...

And He must win the Battle."
