YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CONTINUE to sin. That’s a lie from the pit of hell. But people don’t want to hear the truth. They want to believe that they are in bondage to sin and can never overcome it. It is a lie and an excuse to keep sinning.
The carnal life and mentality is contrary to God’s Word. We cannot please God when we live and act according to our flesh, “Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” Romans 8:7-8
IF you live according to your carnal desires, you cannot please God. This is why you must be born again of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit is an agent of change. The grace that God gives is not just forgiveness of sins, it’s the power to overcome sin and live a life of righteousness. It’s the power to change your heart and your mind. It’s the power to change the leopard’s spots.
Yet, you have to appropriate that power in your life and stop making excuses. You will not overcome your flesh when you shun church, rarely read your Bible or pray, never attend a Bible study or prayer group. You cannot have agape love outside God’s law, for lawlessness destroys love. Live life according to your ways and you cannot please God; but live according to the Holy Spirit and you not only please God, but can overcome all sin and the works of the enemy.
