I'm Trying

Trying by eleventy seven, I'm trying to live trying to hope trying to love trying to cope. We are all trying in this world and everyone fails. We may try to find a cure to sin, but sin continues. There is no cure to stop sinning. Then why do we fight? Because He fought for us. Do you want to stand up or give up? God specifically gave us instructions on how to conquer sin. He gave us the bible, the holy spirit, prayer and the armor of God. And because Jesus overcame sin we have the same ability to overcome sin if we choose to.

2 corinthians 10:5-6 from the message says: 5 We use our powerful God-tools for smashing warped philosophies, tearing down barriers erected against the truth of God, fitting every loose thought and emotion and impulse into the structure of life shaped by Christ. 6 Our tools are ready at hand for clearing the ground of every obstruction and building lives of obedience into maturity. And the new king james version: 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

So what I'm trying to get to is that we can try in this world because of Jesus Christ. There is a question that has been on my mind that someone on the radio asked: if someone doesn't die for our sins then who will? And that question can be used in most topics. If we are all sinning then who won't sin? If no who will lead then who will? YOU. You are qualified. Go lead the world with Christ on the thrown. You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you- Philippians 4:13. All you have to do is ask Him! Lead. This is for those who read (although I only know of one person that reads my post) this post. Live the three e's. "Be an example, encourage others and endure in an authentic relationship with Christ". Try, and try hard. Don't give up trying.
