Why do we persistently choose to go down when we are free? Is it because we are fools choosing something that is wrong despite the facts? or are we simply trying to find something else much better than God?
All the foolishness of this world is passing. All its lust and desires but many times we choose to fall for something that is condemned to pass away and never return. Everything else is like a hollow shell that will crumble away with one breath of God. Everything else will be consumed. But we as christians choose to be slave when we are not. Or am I simplt talking about myself?
No, I am not alone. All of us are struggling each day with the evil desires that is causing death to our bodies.
I myself groan each day with the desire to be free from the chains of my own weaknesses. To become perfectly holy blameles and free. To never sin again and cause pain to Jesus. However, it is a fact that I will never be ale to attain this had God not choose to give grace rather than condemnation. That in the final annalysis even the faith that saves belongs to him which he gracefully gives to us.
At this very minute,I write this essay to console myself of the sorrow of guilt. My body is wasting away. I tried to find satisfaction in things I love to do. But I know that unless turn back to God I will not find any peace.
Yet why am I refusing to go back to God?
Maybe because I've gone through the same cycle again just as I have done so for the billion of times. It is frustrating.
I am not alone.
Unless you turn back to God, your body will waste away.
