Romans 6:18 - Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
“Oh father thank you for your spirit, now I have power over sin!”
I remember seeking to receive the Holy Ghost, at that time I really wanted to fulfill the character of God, but could I? No! Because in me, back then, was another man living. He controlled my emotions and my thoughts, he was the strongman that had my soul in captivity, he is the devil.
I remember a particular time in high school when I tied a red string to my finger so it could be a reminder that i was supposed to be holy on that specific day. Unfortunately, no matter what i did, I could not perform righteousness. Sin had dominion over me. I was of my father the devil and it’s his lust I fulfilled.
