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 ?
