In Christ, we are consecrated for the whole of our lives.
It is always our choice in the steps we walk.
And even though sin will pop up, we are always protected by The Blood of Christ. Our ABBA has also promised an escape route from the temptation to sin. Any temptation. Each and every time.
It is always our choice to run away from the temptations or stop and entertain sin in our life.
What we cover our minds with is what is in our hearts.
It is our choice to put into ourselves His Truth or the world.
Through Christ we have each been given The Helper. Protecting us, fortifying us, enabling us to fight against the attacks of sin in the spiritual warfare surrounding us. As long as we follow His lead, we remain outside of sin.
It is us who goes to the carcass of sin.
In a way that I can not comprehend, His love for each one of us covers the times we do turn away and then return back to Him. His arms are always open in forgiveness, grace and mercy upon receiving our repenting heart.
It amazes me how through Christ we are a sweet smell to Him, even after wallowing in sin.
