Roms 6: 1-2 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?
A few days ago I heard a very interesting perspective of Scripture. The person said that the Scriptures are full of integrity. Simply put, I can trust what it says; one hundred percent. Have you ever felt like this one test/ situation/ person has the ability to get you to fail every time? You may have gotten what we call “victory” in all other 99 tests.... but this one.... In our desperation, we may have tried praying, fasting, confessing to other saints; seeking for what we call deliverance.
But if we are going to honor, the integrity of Scripture we have to agree that we are DEAD to sin. Sin has NO power over the Sons of God. If that is true, and it is, the “struggle” highlighted in the first paragraph has one word- CHOICE. It sounds so blatant and raw but it’s the truth.
