Learning to Battle Sin

“There are many things that bind us! As long as we hold on to them, their power over us continues. It is only by letting go that we become free”–John Dee Jeffries.

“Christ has saved you from sin, but the temptation to keep dabbling in it will keep you busy the rest of  your life. The way to start battling it is to fill your mind so full with the Word of God that the devil’s lies can’t find any room to work”–The Gift New Testament.

“My dearly loved brothers, understand this: everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger, for man’s anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness. Therefore, rid yourselves of all moral filth and evil excess, humbly receive the implanted word, which is able to save you”–James 1:20-21.

“The light Jesus brings helps us to see ourselves more clearly and not to be fooled by what is hidden inside”–James Houston.

“No amount of personal improvement or bootstraps reform measures can help you defeat temptation. You’ll reach the end of your willpower quicker than you think. We like to think we can will our way past the tight spots of life. We think too highly of ourselves”–The Gift New Testament.

“God is perfectly holy and eternal. And what difference does that make? It means that we should try to be as much like Him as we can (as near perfection as humanly possible) and that we should let our minds think bigger than this world, for there is more to life than what we see”–The Gift New Testament.

But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.” — Luke 1:30-33 (NIV)
