EVERYDAY SUCCESS

Image may contain: text

I WAS TAUGHT AS A BABY CHRISTIAN THAT THE WAY TO HEAVEN IS VERY HARD AND LONELY. THEN ONE DAY, AS I WAS READING PROVERBS 13, I WAS SHOCKED TO DISCOVER IN VERSE 15 THAT IT WAS THE WAY OF THE SINNER THAT GOD SAYS IS HARD. OUR LORD JESUS SAID THAT HIS YOKE IS EASY AND HIS BURDEN IS LIGHT. RELIGION MAKES CHRISTIANITY DIFFICULT AND A BURDENSOME EXPERIENCE. 

The reason why some Christians keep struggling with a particular sin for a long time even after several confessions to God isbecause their focus is not on conforming to the image of Christ in them but just to overcome the sins in the world. It looks simple but this statement makes a world of difference between a winning Christian and a struggling one. You really could be sincere in your efforts in becoming a 'better Christian' but be taking the wrong steps toward getting the right result. There is a scriptural principle that states that what you behold is what you become. If all you focus on is how to overcome the weaknesses of your sinful flesh, you will grow increasingly weaker as a Christian, one step forward, two steps backward. However, if you focus on feeding your recreated human spirit with the Word of God and this kind of sound teaching that I share on this devotional, you will increase strength in the inner man and eventually overcome all that weakness in the flesh even without paying attention to them. 

I-DECLARE: the Word of the Lord is a joy to my heart and not a pain to my soul. Therefore, I respond to the grace of that Word which is able to make me strong, holy and a partaker of the divine nature. Bible Reading: Matthew 23 & 24.
