You need to get a handle on this sin thing. What’s the matter with you? You realize don’t you that most people don’t “struggle” with this they way you do, right? There must be something wrong with you, some wires crossed. Whatever it is, you need to draw back into yourself and figure it out. Put prayer on hold, would ya? You can’t be praying in the middle of this giant mess you’re in. And think about your wife, your family, your friends. Listen, I’m your friend, and you have got to get a handle on this. I know you supposedly had a “good day” yesterday but how long will that last? You really think you can string together even five decent days in a row? When has that worked out?
Get to work on this. Figure it out. You’re on your own out there until you can get this sorted out.
Ever heard these words? Yeah. I have. All the time. This is that conversation the devil likes to have with you in order to guarantee that you never break free from sin. Yes, the devil can actually use your own battle with sin against you. A crafty little bastard. Fighting him off can actually fuel his game. Distance from God. It’s all about distance from God. How many times have I skipped prayer because of recent sin? Mission accomplished, devil. Well played.
So let’s set it straight. If you are stuck in sin YOU ARE NOT ALONE. But you had better get about the business of surrounding yourself with strong Christians who don’t define their faith as a means by which to judge the sins of others. You need real Christians, not Christians who are full of crap. You need scripture, and you had best not ever… EVER… step away from prayer. I don’t care how much you lose your battle, you get back onto that battle field with your Christian friends and your powerful God and you fight again.
Got it? Don’t believe the crap you hear. Because you’re going to hear it. Over and over. But you’ve got an army behind you. Want me in your army? I can do that. firstname.lastname@example.org. And trust me on this: with me in your army you will no longer be alone in your sin! We’ll fight it off together.
Take today and kick the living crap out of your sin. Team up. Pray up. Bible up. And start kicking.
We were built to be heroes. It’s about time we start acting like heroes.
