STRUGGLING WITH SIN
Are You Struggling With Sin?
We all have our own set of problems in life. Being trapped in sin is something we all have in common because of the original sin of Adam and Eve. But on the other hand, there are many who are no longer trapped in sin and sins consequences because of our trust and faith in Jesus Christ.
You can get to the root of your problems by talking with a close friend, pastor, or counselor. One of my favorite scriptures is from Psalm 46:1 “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.”
In our society, it has become more acceptable to be associated with sinful things compared to a few decades ago when it was shameful to have anything to do with sinful things. In general, there used to be more respect for God.
If you are trying to do right in God’s eyes but still struggling with sin, there is hope for you! I applaud your desire to get right with God, and I pray that God will give you the strength to stand up against your sin as well as mine.
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Nowadays many people seem just to want to do their own thing, not paying attention to doing God’s will. Instead, they ignore what they believe what is says in the Bible.
In today’s American society, the word “sin” has been replaced with the word “mistake or error,” or other words like them. Or instead of accepting responsibility for our sin, we blame someone else or something in their past. In the Bible, sin is described as a rebellion against God, doing what we want to do instead of doing what God wants us to do. ~ Bill Greguska

You Are Not Alone With Struggling With Sin!
Sin began when Lucifer, an angel of God, became discontent with his place. He wanted to be the supreme authority. He wanted to be God. Lucifer (the devil) then tempted Adam, the first human, to not trust God. The sin factor entered the human race through Adam, and people became sinners by nature. Adam’s sin of rebellion brought him spiritual death, which has been passed on to every person who has been born from him.
We are all sinners, not because we sin; rather, we sin because we are sinners. King David spoke about his fallen human nature in Psalm 51:5, “Surely I was sinful at birth, sinful from the time my mother conceived me.”
