Golden Verse 金句

but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members.  Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death?  Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord!      Romans 7:23-25

但 我 覺 得 肢 體 中 另 有 個 律 和 我 心 中 的 律 交 戰 , 把 我 擄 去 , 叫 我 附 從 那 肢 體 中 犯 罪 的 律 。
 我 真 是 苦 阿 ! 誰 能 救 我 脫 離 這 取 死 的 身 體 呢 ?
 感 謝 神 , 靠 著 我 們 的 主 耶 穌 基 督 就 能 脫 離 了 。
                                                                        使徒行傳  7:23-25

     What I got from Jesus is: Jesus is your only hope not to be in captivity to sin

     What I received from Jesus today is the secret and only way not to be in captivity to sin. If you read this chapter carefully you will find that we have no way to fight against our sinful nature, not even to fight against the cunning and powerful Satan. We are doomed to fail if we insist on our own effort, thinking that we are invincible. 

     I have seen too many Christians trapped by sin no matter they are famous pastors or leaders. People always ask why those things can happen to their trusted leaders. The answer is very simple, whenever we fight alone thinking that we do not need Jesus or dreaming that we already have Jesus but the reality is not that, we are doomed to failure.

    Listen this carefully: Jesus is your only hope not to be in captivity to sin. 
Dear Lord Jesus,
Help us to make the right choice to have you as our King and Lord leading us to victory each day that we would not be in captivity to sin.  In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
