(We must always remember that Jesus victory is our victory. God see’s us as righteous, justified and holy, through the shed blood of Jesus).
“There is therefore no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.”Romans 8 v 1.
Are you walking in the Spirit? Or are you still trying to serve God by your own will and in your own strength? Which is flesh, for if you do, you will be continually under condemnation, for it is impossible for you to stop your flesh from sinning.
Paul the Apostle said, that he delighted in the law of God, but he still found himself continually sinning, he said that it was like a war going on within himself, he cried, “Oh, wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from this body of death? I thank God through Christ Jesus our Lord,” Romans 7 v 24:25
Paul had to keep reminding himself to think spiritually, which resulted in life and peace, but to think that he could do anything in his own power and strength would result in complete failure every time.
Therefore he had to accept, as we all do that the Holy Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead is the same God that dwells in us all, and He will give us the power to resist temptation. For only God has the power, for we in our own strength will always fail.
So, let us remind ourselves that Jesus is our righteousness, “Therefore being justified by faith we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,” Romans 5 v 1.
For only His victory on the cross and resurrection and His ascension into the Holies of Holies, which is in heaven, makes it possible for us to live and walk in the Spirit. So if you sin because your flesh is weak, do not live under condemnation, instead repent.
Do you remember Jesus teachings on repentance and deliverance? If you sin seven times in a day, and turn and repent, God will forgive you, and you will never have to be under condemnation again. Praise be to our wonderful Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We must always remember that Jesus victory is our victory. God see’s us as righteous, justified and holy, through the shed blood of Jesus.
Although your flesh continues to fail you, it still does not change the fact that in Christ Jesus you are His child, and that the only thing that can separate you from God is unconfessed sin.
So, it goes without saying that if you continually repent, and rely on His power alone to stop you from sinning, you will be able to walk and live in the Spirit, and sin will have no dominion over you, praise God.
“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, 1John 1 v 9.
Wash me, Oh Lamb of God, wash me from sin! I long to be like thee all pure within. Now let the crimson tide, shed from thy wounded side, be to my heart applied, and make me clean. Thou, while I trust in thee, wilt keep me clean, each day to thee I bring. Heart, life, yea, everything; saved, while to thee I cling, saved from all sin.
