July 31

Try as you may to turn the Word of God into something that makes your sin not a sin, but you will not succeed. You may say that God would not put undue burden upon you and give you a desire for something He considers immoral, and that’s true, but the desires you have come from a tainted, sinful world, not God. The reason you stay in the mess you are in is because you haven’t given your whole life over to Jesus, including the sin you cherish. Your desire for Jesus must be stronger and more powerful than anything else within you. So, if you keep “messing up” doing the same thing that’s causing you trouble, allow God to redeem it! Turn it over to Him, and let Him handle it by removing it from your life. It’s only through His power that you will overcome, and be released from the talons of the enemy. If anyone tells you that you can keep on sinning or continuing in an immoral lifestyle, and that it’s okay with Jesus, they’re wrong! The chances of Jesus saying “I never knew you,” are quite high, and you may need salvation.

For it has seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay on you no greater burden than these requirements: that you abstain from what has been sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from what has been strangled, and from sexual immorality. If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well. Farewell.” Acts 15:28-29
