Romans 7:15 - 25 is arguably the best piece of literary genius by Paul. It is written in the most intriguing manner that sometimes we are forced to read it again and again. Paul honestly describes the personal struggle he has to go through, to do the good he wants to do. Here are his word - "For what I want to do, I do not do, but what I hate I do". every Christian can relate to what Paul is describing. We make decisions only to see ourselves break it within days. We then get disappointed. The life of most Christians is therefore one roller coaster ride. The devil does not care about these Christians. If you are a roller coaster christian there are a few things you need to know.
There is a sinful nature residing in us. As long as we live, it will be there in us. And as long as it is there, we will sin. So, what is the way out of this vicious cycle you ask?. We have to daily acknowledge our sins to the Lord to maintain a good relationship with God. See, God hates it when you sin but even more than that he hates with when you try to hide it from Him. When I first heard this theory of acknowledging our sins daily I asked myself, "Doesn't God get tired of forgiving the same sin over and over again". Well, let that trick from the devil never hold you captive brother/sister. Do you want to know why God never gets tired of forgiving you for the same sin again and again. Because, the day you accepted Jesus into your life, the forgiveness for sin was yours. Every sin you could possibly commit is already forgiven. Romans 8:1 says "There is therefore no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus". Whoa!!!, isn't that good news. Yes it is and this is the gospel. But there is something funny in it right? You may ask If we are already forgiven why should you acknowledge the sin every day of your life. Have you noticed that once you commit a sin, every time you want to pray the devil reminds of you of your sin. This is the classic trick used by the Devil for ages. But, when you tell God what you did and when you are really sorry. God looks on the Cross and says "All" your sins have been blotted out. If we can understand this little concept of Grace we will have a victorious christian life. I pray that every reader will be delivered from the trap of the devil who points fingers at you. Jesus Loves You.
