taking responsibility

Many times  I wake up and worry if I am really a Christian. I believe that Jesus was sent by the father to die for my sins. I believe that he left me the Holy Spirit to help and guide me. I have asked Jesus into my life and  i am filled with the Spirit.

Yet when I read in the bible about putting on the new and taking off the old self, I wonder if I am really understanding what a Christian actually is.

I can walk as a new creation that is as an adopted Son. yet at times I seem to be stuck in the old person. I believe that I need to not give up at these times. I believe that hopelessness is a defeated mindset.

Jesus died to break the power of Sin, which is the character of my old man. I need to stand up as a new creation and refuse to sin. When I refuse then I break the power of it in my life. There is a problem then. it means that I have a daily choice to make.

I hate making choices sometimes because if it goes wrong then it is my fault. I always thought it was my fault anyway. So I may as well make the decision.

It is responsibility that I am afraid of. I can make it in Christ if I am responsible.

Today I choose to take full responsibility for my walk with Jesus.

Will you take responsibility for your walk ?

About cleavinghearts

I go to church in Troon Scotland. I want to see men from every nation rise up in Christ and be who they are called to be. I am interested in men getting together to praise and just do men's things. I also want to see women rise above their pain and turmoil so they are free to follow Jesus without the hindrances of their past.
