WHY CHRISTIANS CAN’T STOP DELIBERATE SIN?

Many Christians ask WHY they can’t stop sinning. Many also say it is impossible to stop sinning, it can’t be done. Is that true?

Dear friends, the reason Christians can’t overcome sin is because they are BELIEVING the lies of the devil and because they WANT to SATISFY the desires of the flesh. Jesus says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak. …

We cannot believe the devil, brush Jesus to the side and do our own thing, please our own flesh.

Dear friends, Paul says that if we WALK IN THE SPIRIT we will NOT FULFILL the desires of the flesh. If we ABIDE AND WALK in the Spirit, we will OVERCOME sin. We will not be DOMINATED by sin.

WHY CHRISTIANS CAN’T STOP DELIBERATE SIN?

Many Christians ask WHY they can’t stop sinning. Many also say it is impossible to stop sinning, it can’t be done. Is that true?

Dear friends, the reason Christians can’t overcome sin is because they are BELIEVING the lies of the devil and because they WANT to SATISFY the desires of the flesh. Jesus says the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.

One MAJOR lie the devil comes with when temptation is presented is that he will try to make us LOOK AWAY from God, to put Jesus Christ on the side, so that he makes us focus on the sin itself, on OUR FLESH. The devil will try to tell you: “God is not there, He is not watching, He is busy with other things, He doesn’t care about your sin, He will not mind it…”.

The serpent did that with Eve, he made her look away, forget about the presence of God, forget that God is there watching. She was caught up with how the fruit was desirable to her eyes. She thought God was not there but He WAS. He SEES ALL.

And this is what we do, we look away from God, we put Him on the side for a moment and we go ahead and please ourselves, please our flesh.

We NEED to ABIDE IN JESUS CHRIST, We need to know that He is ALWAYS THERE. Jesus said in John 8 to those who BELIEVED IN HIM: “If MY WORDS ABIDE in you, you shall KNOW THE TRUTH and the truth shall SET YOU FREE”.

If we want to be set free from a deliberate lifestyle of sin, we need to make sure we are abiding in Jesus and that His words ARE ABIDING IN US. We need to BEHOLD His presence. We cannot believe the devil, brush Jesus to the side and do our own thing, please our own flesh.

Dear friends, Paul says that if we WALK IN THE SPIRIT we will NOT FULFILL the desires of the flesh. If we ABIDE AND WALK in the Spirit, we will OVERCOME sin. We will not be DOMINATED by sin.

This is not about perfection, we can stumble but if we are WALKING DELIBERATELY in sin, that is different and God KNOWS THE DIFFERENCE.

I ask you today brothers and sisters,

– Are you BEHOLDING the presence of Jesus in your life?

– Are the words of Christ CONSTANTLY abiding in you?

– Are you ABIDING IN HIM?

– Is your faith in Him STRONGER than the temptations of the devil and your flesh?

OR

will you put Jesus on the side when the devil comes to you with his temptations? Will you allow the devil to dominate you and then drag you to hell with him and his demons?

Please share with the people you love who are stuck in deliberate sin?

May God help us overcome in the name of Jesus Christ!
