A New Beginning?

When we choose to give our lives to Christ, we have called out war against our sinful selves. It is not enough for me, then, to simply pray, ‘Jesus, I realise I’m a sinner and I turn my life to You,’ then sit back and expectantly wait for deliverance. It is important to pinpoint that which one struggles with and as they confess it, one by one, make deliberate effort to starve the root cause of that sin. Am I reading or watching something sensual, so that I’m struggling with lust? To live a life of following Christ, I have to let the Holy Spirit teach my heart- and obey- as I set my mind on what is true and good and right; by thinking of things pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others (Philippians 4:8)
