How many believers in Christ constantly struggle with sin? From pornography to idle gossip, big sins and small sins, it’s all the same. We’re forgiven yet we struggle to live holy. How do we deal with this and overcome? Jesus identified the problem and gave us the answer.
“Keep watch and pray, so that you will not give in to temptation. For the spirit is willing, but the body is weak.” (Mark 14:38)
If we don’t keep watch over our temptations and pray to overcome, our weakness will prevail. Even though we desire to be obedient, we fail. If the Disciples needed this word from Jesus, then surely we need it as well. – gene
