MANY CHRISTIANS VIEW CHRIST only as a concept. He has a become a general “good” notion or idea, and so as such people have no real conversion and no real power in this world to overcome sin and Satan. They continue to live life on their own merit and strength, but when an obstacle arises, and the storm rages they falter and turn towards the world’s way of “overcoming”. Their prayers are futile and their life looks just about like everyone else’s life- friends, parties, and vacations. There’s nothing that remotely looks separated from the world, well except they occasionally attend church and they might pray over their food. They cannot truly overcome because they lack the power of the Holy Spirit. Your will power can only do so much friend. The world’s secular ways will only put you into further bondage.
Christian, it’s high time you take a long, hard look in the mirror of the Word of God. Do you really trust in Jesus? Have you been convicted of your sin? Have you been born again? Turned away from your old life in repentance and put on the new man in Christ? Has your life been transformed and your mind renewed? Will you be caught unaware? If you find you’re not overcoming, then the reasonable question is: “Why?” Paul was speaking to a bunch of Christians, “Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.” Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame.” I Corinthians 15:33-34 NKJV #runyourrace
