Verse Of The Day
October 23, 2014
I do not understand what
I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
on Today’s Verse
This is more than the cry of one desperate man — it
describes the experience of any Christian struggling against sin or trying
to please God by keeping rules and laws without the Spirit's help. We must
never underestimate the power of sin, and we must never attempt to fight it
in our own strength. Satan is a crafty tempter, and we have an amazing
ability to make excuses. Instead of trying to overcome sin with human
willpower, we must take hold of the tremendous power of Christ that is
available to us. This is God's provision for victory over sin — he sends
the Holy Spirit to live in us and give us power. And when we fall, he
lovingly reaches out to help us up! Being born again takes a moment of
faith, but becoming like Christ is a lifelong process.
