You Are Not the Enemy

despair

Oftentimes, even as believers, we can convince ourselves that we are enemies of God. Deep in our hearts we believe that in our sin, we have made ourselves the enemy.  Here’s why:

The reason we sin is because at that time, we wanted that feeling, that thing, that experience more than we wanted God.  We wanted the money, to be accepted, whatever it was, more than God when we did it.  What happens is subconsciously we know it, and it weighs on us, and we feel like enemies of God.

Remember how Paul chastised the Colossians: Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. Yes, once we were enemies, but no longer. Even though we’re no longer enemies because of what Christ did for us on the cross, we can convince ourselves that we are. So repent of your sin, thank God that you are forgiven- yet again, and breath a sigh of relief. But you are not the enemy.
