Dont be to hard on yourself.

  1. Dont be to hard on yourself.

    Rom 7:13-26
    I dont really know what to say, for me it explains itself well..
    God bless.
  2. Good verses to meditate on my brother .

    Why should Christians try to live a holy life? Because God is holy, and in our love for Him, we should seek to emulate him with our own lives. We are often called to be imitators of Christ, and holiness is one of his most defining traits.

    1 Peter 1:15-16

    15........ But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;

    16...... for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy "
  3. Remember these passages were not separated by Chapter and verse. So to continue, altho this was speaking of how we war with the flesh and seemingly cannot overcome, the next passage shows how we CAN be victorious over the flesh and walk in the spirit. Its because Jesus has broken the bondage of sin and freed us that we can be obedient to the Spirit of God.

    Romans 8:1There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    2For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.
    3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
    4That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
    5For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.
    6For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
    7Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
    8So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
    9But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
    10And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
    11But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
    12Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
    13For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
  4. Amen God Speaks .
