God is great.
By his power and grace the christians of BCC came together again last sunday to worship, praise and listens to Him speak words of wisdom and directions into their hearts through his wonderful servants. The man of God for the day was Pastor Arung Bate he spoke on the theme “Winning The War Of Sin” From Romans 6. He gave some three things to fight this world of sin which were.
i) Knowing who we are . We really run away from the word sin and put other words, the way you persive sin is very propotional to the way you are close to God. The more we get to God the more he reveals to us where we are weak. We are not sinners because we sin we were born sinners. You are still a sinner till when you come to the cross because the blood has dealed with the sin. But the cross deals with the person in sin. When you come to the Jesus the old man dies and the new man comes forth.When Christ came to our lives it didn’t change it was exchanged. Rmns 6:6.
ii) We have to reconcile Rmns 6:7. To reconcile means to always acknowledge the fact that we belong to Jesus, because that’s what will cause you not to misbehave when you meet tempeting situations. We behave ordinary because we don’t recognice who we are and who you are will cause you to do what you do. In salvation there is a part we have to play to be saved. Christianity is practical. You must come to a place were you are not resisting you must flee.
iii) Lastly we have to render our all to Jesus Rmns 6:13. If am a Christian i have to agree that this body is not mine i was bought with a prize and I am His temple. Don’t be conformed to this world. You have to metamorphose from a caterpillar which is dirty and harmful to a butterfly which is clean and gentle and sin will not have dominion over you.
