It is Written, “ For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.” Romans 7:18
“ For I know that good itself goes not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature…” I have found that men idolize other men. I never could understand this and I am not talking about in the world. In many Christian circles, there are the “Super Apostles” as Paul would refer to them. Even then, you will find preachers of the Word with this title! What is a title? For we are all servants. Even Paul, who wrote most of the new testament, struggled to do what is write. For it is written that Paul asked the Lord to remove the thorn from His side, but God said my Grace is sufficient. All Men struggle, for this is the nature or Flesh verse Spirit. Though you may want to do right, your soulish nature will always fight against you. “For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out…” We are bound by Grace and Truth, if you are to live a life in Christ foot steps, you will found yourself constantly humbled, for the Lord despises the Proud. This is Why Jesus is our mediator, who he knew that the only way to be cleansed of our Sins, we for Him to redeem us through His Perfect Work. Take Heart, do not forsake righteous work that the Lord has assigned you, for even in our failings, He is Callings us to continue on!
Prayer: Father, I know the weakness of the flesh tries to lead your Children astray, but I Pray for each and everyone of your people who seek to Spread your Word in Jesus Name, Amen!
