March 19, 2017 Growing as a christian…The struggle is all part of the process

A verse from the bible – Acts 14:22  “strengthening the souls of the disciples and encouraging them to continue in the faith. “We must endure many hardships to enter the kingdom of God,” they said.

As a caterpillar becomes a butterfly, it struggles. The struggle is all part of the process. But once a butterfly, there is no more time on the ground – time to fly!

If you are a christian, a true follower of the Lord – and if you are struggling with sin- continue to trust God. Don’t give up. He will not give up on you. Sanctification takes time. God controls the time table to your freedom. Do your best to obey, pray, and trust His Word.

Another verse from the bible -John 8:36 “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.”

Adam & Eve disobeyed, thus everyone has trials/hardships/struggles/weakness.

God sent His Son to set human beings from their sin. Romans 10:13 says “for “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

He offers eternal life as a free gift. Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
