One of the things that I regularly contemplate is my failings. Most of you are probably in the same boat. You look at your life and all the ways you have fallen.
In the words of Wayne Campbell, "We're not worthy!"
When I find myself slipping into temptation, these are the words that I often use to convince myself that it's ok to slip. "You're not worthy!" "You're not good enough.", "You can't stop that."
But are these phrases true?
I have been a Christian for a long time, yet I am still far from perfect. Although sometimes I joke with my wife that I am. She knows.
But what about what Scripture says.
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (NKJV)
2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. (NKJV)
It seems to me through my experience that to often we make excuses that let us fail. We talk negatively.
We are not failures anymore! That is not what the Bible teaches us. If we have given it to Christ. He makes us new. The Old is gone. The language it uses is very final. I think we need to stop making excuses and claim victory over our sins when we are faced with them. You are not a failure, you are a champion.
That's right you. You're a Champion!
Say it, "I am a Champion!"
No more negative talk. You are a victor. Jesus died for you and washed it all away. Your past is gone.
If Jesus can raise from the dead, surely our sins are nothing.
I want to take you back to Hebrews 11. Read it today from the perspective, that because Jesus died for you, you too can be a champion like the people in listed Hebrews. If Christ is for us who can be against us?
How often do we wonder, "Where am I going? or What is my purpose?" In our day to day life, in our inner walk, many of us are looking for a purpose. You may be here because you want answers. You may be here because you truly want an Epic Walk. For whatever your reason, I am glad you are here. Read on. Enjoy our daily homework and hopefully, you can find more purpose, and begin an Epic Walk.
