“For we cannot oppose the truth, but must always stand for the truth.”
When we read this we need to remember it is not what we want it to say it is what God has said. We can get caught up in making ourselves feel good and we can even search the word to make us think our sin is ok but we must let God transform us into His image. Look at what Paul says in 2 Corinthians chapter 12 verse 21 “Yes, I am afraid that when I come again, God will humble me in your presence. And I will be grieved because many of you have not given up your old sins. You have not repented of your impurity, sexual immorality, and eagerness for lustful pleasure.” See we can't guide the truth we must let go and live the truth.
We were all born sinners and have different struggles, but we must remember Jesus' example to surrender His will and only do what the Father tells Him. See, when we are children we are not aware of the struggles (sin) that are in us but as we grow they will become more evident in our lives. The amazing thing we must remember is that God so loved the world He sent His one and only Son into the world to bridge the gap between us and God so we have eternal life through Him. John chapter 3 verses 16-17 say, ““For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent His Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through Him.”
See when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior we receive the Holy Spirit and we become new creations that are no longer slaves to the old sins that kept us controlled. In Ephesians chapter 1 verse 13 Paul share this; “And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, He identified you as His own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom He promised long ago.” The Spirit in us is what guides us and shares with us all truth so as we grow, we develop and as we develop we mature and our lives resemble Christ's. The truth will set us free not keep us chained so we must open our hearts and keep seeking Him so our minds are renewed and we are not continually tripped up by our sins. Amen
