Ok, you are a believer…you are trying to live the Christian life but it can be tough. Even though we are believers, we will still sin. Even though our sins forgiven, our old flesh still lives. Every day we have to ask the Lord to crucify our old flesh. So the battle with sin is real.
We face temptation but, Paul challenges us to not let sin control the way we live. That means, that sin should govern or control our lives. We may slip at times, but sin shouldn’t control us.
Paul said, “Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires.” How do we do this? There is only one way and that’s through the power of the Holy Spirit. You and I do not have the strength to do it on our own.
There may be some particular sin that you struggle with. Maybe there is some particular habit you deal with. Give it to the Lord and ask for help and the Lord will help us.
