This is a pretty powerful video, and it should make you think.

I’m reminded of Genesis 4:7 when the LORD warned Cain, “And if you do not do well, sin crouching at the door.  It’s desire is for you, but you must rule over it.”  In our flesh that is impossible to do as Paul proclaims in Romans 7.  Praise God that He through the cross has given those who have placed their faith and trust in Jesus Christ are called to freedom, (Galatians 5:13).  Not only that, but we have been crucified with Christ, it is no longer we who live, but Christ who lives through us, (Galatians 2:20).

Something to be thankful to God for.

  1. Thank God for our new hearts! I think that we would give in less to temptation if we would learn to strengthen our innermost being. Sin can only be defeated by a strong inner being.. the flesh is powerless against sin.. the best we can do is white-knuckle it with our flesh.
