WE DON’T HAVE TO DO WHAT OUR SINFUL NATURES WANT US TO DO
I know that the pull of sin is very strong. But we have the opportunity of making the right choice. We are not obligated to do what everyone else is doing. We can make the choice to obey and be controlled by the Holy Spirit.
Romans 8:12 So, dear brothers, you have no obligations whatever to your old sinful nature to do what it begs you to do.
It can be different.
BECAUSE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WE CAN OVERCOME TEMPTATION
Romans 8:13 For if you keep on following it you are lost and will perish, but if through the power of the Holy Spirit you crush it and its evil deeds, you shall live.
The Holy Spirit is the one who can help us to overcome doing wrong. This verse tells us that we can crush sin. It also tells us that we can have LIFE. This is the lifestyle of the over comer. It is possible because of the HOLY SPIRIT. The choice is obvious.
SONS OF GOD ARE LED BY THE SPIRIT
Romans 8:14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
One of the qualifications for being God’s son, is that we are lead by the Holy Spirit. This does not happen by accident. It does not take place automatically as we live life. It happens by deliberate decision and a lifestyle of the pursuit of the Spirit. I want to be one of those who are lead by the Spirit. I trust that you will join me, in this decision.
