Greatest Battle!!! Part 2

 Romans 7:14-25 New International Version (NIV)
“14 We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin.
 15 I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.
16 And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good.
17 As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me.
 18 For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. [ a ] For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out.
 19 For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing.
20 Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
 21 So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.
22 For in my inner being I delight in God’s law;
23 but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me.

24 What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death?
 25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature [ b ] a slave to the law of sin.”

 Friend, this is the true story of Paul the apostle when he was a religious man, thinking he was serving God! Because no religious man can be free from the nature of sin which we inherited from Adam and Eve except he is converted to Jesus!
And from the day we sinned through Adam and Eve, we became carnally minded! The thought of man now tends to wickedness and sinfulness! That was why Cain deceived His brother to follow him to the field and he killed him! Because the nature of God in man that made him to live holy before the fall left as soon as Satan deceived him to sin and disobeyed God!
Therefore, from that time till date, carnal mindedness has become the greatest enemy of man, that is the reason why you fornicates, commits adultery, cheats, tell lies, hates, unforgiven, masturbates, steal, smokes and drinks, etc.
But as soon has Jesus took over the life of Paul, he overcame carnality! Why Jesus has already nailed all the nature of sins to His cross!
25 Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature [ b ] a slave to the law of sin.”
The bible also says in Colossians 2:14-15. That;
14 “having cancelled the charge of our legal indebtedness, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the cross.
15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”
Friend, Jesus broke the powers and government or authority of darkness that made the flesh or carnality to be our greatest enemy and nail it to the cross! To nail something to the cross means to kill that thing! So Jesus took our sins to the cross and destroys it together with all the powers that attached itself to it!
That is why Romans 6:14 says sins shall not have dominion over you and me because we are no longer under the law, but under grace! The grace of God is our divine anchor and power that can make all genuine believers in Christ to live a sinless life!
That is why Paul said at the end of the day that I am what I am by the grace of God!

 I Corinthians 15:10. Outside God divine grace you can’t live to please God after conversion! So if there is anything a believer should pray about in this area is to receive the power of grace to live to please God, to receive God’s grace to live to overcome sins!
Friend, the grace has been released from the cross of Calvary over two thousand ago, we are saved by grace, we are preserves by grace, we lives by grace, we do everything under God’s grace! In this kingdom. But you need to ask for that grace after your genuine conversion!
Therefore, the greatest battle could only be fought by the grace of God, through the power of the word of God, powered by the Holy Spirit!
So when a believer lacks the presence of the power of grace by the power of the Holy Ghost, he will be overcome by the power of sins and unrighteousness! And died and go to hell!
That is why it is possible to believe Jesus, preach Jesus, serve Jesus and still go to hell, if one has not receive the grace to live over and above sins!
That is why you see so many believers in Christ and preachers or ministers of the gospel who still have boy or girl friends to commits sin with, or woman or man friends, who still drinks alcohol or smokes cigarette, they still cheats etc.
Their song always is, the spirit is willing but the flesh is week, why they are still in the flesh, not in the spirit! The grace of God to live sinless in not in them! They live under the bondage of sins!

 And end up in hell after death!
Friend, are you overcoming this greatest battle? Or it is overcoming you every day? You need Jesus, you need to genuinely give your life to Jesus, and make up your mind to live for God in holiness and righteousness! You need to take time to ask for His grace to hate sin, and to live over and above it!
Remember, Jesus will come very soon, don’t let Him meet you still struggling over sin, let Him meet you prepare as the bride who is ready to enter into marriage! Be ready to eat marriage supper with Jesus after rapture!
