Our Scripture reading today is Romans 7:22-25.
Verse 25, "I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin."
There is a wonderful reminder in this passage of God's Word. We can say no to the flesh and say yes to the Spirit. Our daily victory is in Jesus Christ. He has already won the war and all we need to do is claim the victory. Romans 12:2, "And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God." A renewed mind is a mind that is full of the Word of God. By using the Sword of the Spirit, we are able to overcome the pull of the flesh to give in to temptation. Are you be guided by His Word or your flesh? Have you allowed your flesh to keep you from being a witness for Jesus Christ?
It is time for God's children to rise up and praise Him for the victory that we have in Jesus! It is time to daily walk in the Spirit. It is time to put to practice the truths and principles we find in His Word. 1 John 5:4, "For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith."
Have a wonderful day!
