Stay Free


“For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.” (Romans 8:2, Amplified)

Have you ever been praying or meditating on God‘s word and, suddenly, an ungodly thought comes to mind? It may be a memory or a feeling or fantasy… but either way, it is in opposition to your current task.

This is the law of sin and death that is at work within us. As long as we live in this earth, sin will never stop pursuing us. As a matter of fact, after we become believers in Christ, sin’s main objective is to take us down. Whether it is to steal our focus, misdirect our affections, or to draw us away — sin is always at work.

Don’t feel bad, though. It’s our flesh that is a problem. The Bible teaches that the Spirit of God and our flesh are at war with one another. They cannot co-exist because they cannot agree. The flesh wants what God hates and the Spirit wants what the flesh hates. Yet, we must understand that we are already free from the bondage of sin and death. Christ has defeated sin, death, and the devil and, through Christ, we have power to maintain our position victory. So, we must choose: serve the Spirit or serve our flesh.

An old Cherokee told his grandson:
“My son, there is battle between two wolves inside us all
One is Evil.
It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego.
The other is Good.
It’s joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, & truth.”
The boy thought about it and asked:
“Grandfather, which wolf wins?”
The old man quiety replied:
“The one you feed.”
