I have had a great day and cannot wait to see what tomorrow brings. I was just reading something a little while ago and it has had me thinking. It was discussing people who do not want to surrender "all" to God, they tend to want to keep that little sin in their life. Do we think that "it " can fulfill us more than Jesus Christ. Anyway the scripture they were referring to is Romans 6:11 In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. You can try to play dead " to your sin that is", but sooner or later it catches up to you. These "almost dead" Christians stay in a constant battle and are probably miserable, they cannot know the abundant life of Christ because of their stubbornness to give up their worldly pleasure. So my question is do we truly die to that sin, lay it down and give it to God or do we continue "faking death" and stay miserable. I personally have just walked through this with a sin in my life that I did not realize that I was still bound too. When God revealed the "fakeness" of it all I could not believe I had given into it. This last 2 weeks have given me a hunger for God that I have been missing for awhile. I praise God and give Him the glory for His revelations and convictions, but most of all His love.
