I understand the struggle with sin. I am very familiar with it. It like tug or war. The thing is, you have to do your best to make the winning side. sin wants you, and God also wants you. Sin is offering death and God is offering everlasting life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 6:23
Sin may feel good at the moment but you are working upon a payday that is death.
My struggle with sin was not an easy one. I found myself dealing with what Apostle Paul dealt with when he said, So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. Romans 7:21
In order to understand what you’re dealing with, you have to understand sin. you have to know What is sin? What it purpose? Sin is wrong doing. Wrong doing that leads to many consequences. As a child we were taught to differentiate right from wrong. For example: if something was HOT you was taught to not touch it. Some of us had to learn the hard way. OUCH! That experience taught us to learn from our mistakes. Well it suppose to anyway.
we are in a battle with the flesh and the Spirit. Spirit wants to do what’s right but flesh wants to do what’s wrong. Flesh wants what flesh wants and will do whatever it takes to get it. Within your body it’s a raging war with your flesh and your spirit. Flesh want to be in control, Flesh wants dominion over the Spirit, Flesh wants your soul and Flesh survives off of temporary things, Emotions and thoughts. Flesh holds no good things. Our righteous come from the Spirit of GOD! Wrong doing may feel right at the moment but the end results is death.
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death. Proverbs 14:12
I remember going to church every Sunday. I’ll go up to the Alter struggle with dropping my sinS at the Alter. I would leave out the door as I came. I just didn’t have the strength to leave them there. Sin had become a part of me. Sometimes I would leave them only to come back the following Sunday to pick them back up. I felt guilty and convicted all at the same time. Slowly by the Grace of God, I dealt with each sin according. We can’t ignore sin because sin will never go away. We have to DEAL with sin. We can’t hide it because it will remind us daily. It was process but I was slowly making progress with the Help of the lord. when it came down to the bosom sin I had to make a choice to drop it, to leave it at the alter, for forsake it, to hate it. I had to tell myself was my sin worth my relationship with God?🤔 That made it a little better because the Holy Spirit will bring to remembrance:If you love me, you will keep my commandments. John 14:15 That gave me a greater tug to the winning side.
t’s time to give up my bosom sin. bosom sin are sins that’s close to your heart. Sin that you can’t see yourself living without. sin that you love the most. God is greater than any sin and also forgive all sins. He help me and It wasn’t easy. Sin had became a habit. It was a high that kept me running back. it had dominion and it was a fight to evict sin from my life. with the help of the Father, son and Holy Spirit, FLESH had no choice but to bow down and get in submission with the Spirit ofGod.🙌🏾 hallelujah!!!!!!!
God loves us so much that he will use PAIN to shake sin out of our life. Regardless of how long you hold to sin, I’m here to tell you that you will loose. it’s easier to release and surrender to Gods will. you will never win a fight with the “Trinity.” The Father, son and Holy Spirit.
Man may take his hands off of us but the Father love us too much and he will do whatever to save our soul from hell. Choose Whom You Will Serve:Now therefore fear the Lord and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the Lord. And if it is evil in your eyes to serve the Lord, choose this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your fathers served in the region beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:14-15

No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. Matthew 6:24
Surely the arm of the LORD is not too short to save, nor his ear too dull to hear.Isaiah 59:1
But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear. Isaiah 59:2
