There are many KEY RELATIONSHIPS in life. In-laws, siblings, friends, church small-groups, etc. In this section, we look at the power of these relationships and how we can strengthen and build them as they are key to our lives.
Do you ever fight with yourself? I definitely do! When I fight and lose to myself, this is probably what you would hear me say, “Why did I just do that?! Dang it! I am such an idiot!” (Seriously, that happens. Listen to the video below to hear more about this story I am about to tell.) It seems that no matter how hard I try, I am always fighting. Not against other people though. I am in a fight against myself and it is one of the most frustrating things in all of life. If you’ve ever read the Bible then you may have read this passage of Scripture from Romans 7:15-20. It’s exactly what I feel like I’m up against sometimes. “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate – I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.” Paul knew what it was like to fight against himself. Maybe you do, too. If so, keep reading. There’s hope for idiots like us. (Sorry, no offense) […]
