Slaves to Righteousness by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/19/11

 

“Well, I asked God to forgive me today. But I feel really embarrassed coming to Him over and over again with the same thing. I just feel like a failure.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: The apostle Paul talked about a similar experience in Romans chapter 7. He wanted to do good, but he said, “I see another law at work . . . waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin.”

Every true believer wants to please God, but each of us has a flesh that fights against the Spirit living in us. Every time we choose to sin, we’re establishing habit patterns that can be hard to break. And if we think we don’t have any choice but to sin, that’s exactly what we’ll do.

The good news of the Gospel is that through Christ we have the power to say no to sin, and yes to God.

“’You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.’ Well, maybe there is hope for me.”

  • “Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.” – Elisabeth Elliot
