Fighting Sin Top 12

by David Kyle 9/24/2014

Fighting Sin Top 12... at least somewhere near the top.I don't really know if these are the top twelve, but they are important things to be aware of and remember in this lifelong fight with sin.

  1. This fight with sin exposes the utter corruption of my entire nature (Psalm 51:3).
  2. I understand there is no “good” part of my person which is not defiled (Romans 7:18).
  3. I recognize my complete inability to wage war against sin on my own (Romans 7:22-23).
  4. I know if I am to be saved it must be by God's grace alone without my good works (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  5. In this fight God's grace becomes all the more sweeter and precious to me (Hebrews 4:16).
  6. The righteousness of Christ becomes clearer, exalted, and more needful (Romans 3:21-26).
  7. I am utterly dependent upon and completely satisfied in Christ's righteousness (Philippians 3:8-11).
  8. When I fight sin, Satan is more frustrated and exposed at his inability to find complete victory (James 4:7).
  9. I become more dependent upon the grace of God as the struggle continues throughout life (2 Corinthians 12:9).
  10. Overtime I learn how to be Jesus to others involved in this same fight (Colossians 3:12-13).
  11. I loosen my hold on this world and look forward to death (Philippians 1:21).
  12. My assurance is strengthened as I see God's work in and through me during this fight (1 Peter 1:6-7).

Each one of these items is worth talking about, so I would like to spend time sharing about how each one is important as it relates to the fight with sin in our lives.
