Every believer struggles with their flesh (sinful desires) and I am no exception. I always feel like I am getting pulled by my wicked heart to do the wrong thing. It’s a daily struggle that Paul seemed to have understood that when he wrote Romans 7.
I was listening to an album I purchased a while ago called “Identity Crisis” by Tedashii. I was blessed by a song that featured another rapper named Flame. The song’s title is “Make War” and it shows that everyday is a battle between our redeemed selves and our sinful selves.
This battle rages on in everyone that walks in the faith so I thought I would try to communicate some ideas on how to fight. I don’t have a step by step way of getting rid of sin but hopefully these three must-haves in the Christian’s life will help.
1st: Read the Bible. This is the best way to hear God’s heart. The Bible is truth wrapped up in words and it should be part of our lives everyday!
2nd: Be a prayer warrior. We need to stay connected with the Father. He loves hearing from his children and we all need someone to talk to and there is really no one better than him!
3rd: Stay in fellowship. Christ showed us the importance of reaching the low and sinful by being with them but he also spent most of his time with his disciples. We need to reach the world but we also need to have a group of people around us who love Christ and who are growing in their faith. Without them it is easy to stumble.
Here is the video that encouraged this post and I pray that it encourages you to keep the faith and fighting sin.
