Being a Christian is not an easy task. However much we would like to think that because God's got our back, what makes being a Christian so difficult is because we have to fight sin 24/7. I'm not gonna lie, it is a round the clock battle for me. It is so as we are innately sinful human beings born into sin and lived a life of sin from birth. Just because we are born again, it doesn't make us immune to the outside influences we marinade in day in and day out.
But God understands our shortcoming. He knows that it is a losing battle. How does He know that? Because He experienced it Himself through the life and death of Jesus Christ. He sent His only Son and multidimensionally, Himself, to experience the evil in the world. It is, of course, part of His plan and ties in the Old and the New Testament with the world's future. He is not expecting us to be perfect. There is no way for that to happen. All He wants is for us to include Him in our everyday lives because if and when we do so, and follow His guidance and instructions, we are able to fight sin as it is thrown at us.
As we grow with every testimony and acceptance of God's grace and favor, we are more apt to walk in His Will, instead of ours. God's Will is the right way to live our lives and become a great example for others in their lives. Everything that in God's plan makes perfect sense if we just open our hearts, our minds and our spirits to God's instruction. Whatever our conscience says that is good, is God's voice. Heed.
