For What I Will To Do…

For What I Will To Do…

Do we know what we are doing? Do we understand what we are doing? Is the autopilot of our life never shut off or do we simply repeat the same routine day-in and day-out? How does the cycle break and we become the child of God we are intended to be?

Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. ~ Romans 7:13-14 NKJB

We know what we are to do, however, the weight of doing good becomes that of a ships anchor that holds us in chains that our hands can not break. There is One that can break these chains. Has the weight become to much to bear or is it something we carry to show the world our victimhood? Is it a “badge of honor” that we cry out for sympathy or do we cry out to Jesus Christ to rescue us from what we can no longer bear? It is our choice, free will is from God, how we use it determines next steps.

For what I am doing, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. ~ Romans 7:15-16 NKJB

When we fall to our knees, humble our heart and seek, first, the Kingdom of God, Jesus will come to us. Jesus will break our chains. Jesus will break the routine, when we follow Him. Jesus Christ does not follow nor care about our routines, He wants to lead us to another life, a new life that celebrates life filled with joy, not tears, filled with surrender not slavery, filled with hope not despair. We can have it all by simply surrendering to His will and leaving our will at the side of the road. But we find the ease of sin a powerful tool of the devil – the one who rules our flesh, the one who whispers sweet nothings that make us to turn away.

For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. ~ Romans 7:22-25 NKJB

It doesn’t have to be this way. It is by transforming our mind resting in the mercies that are renewed every morning we can renew our mind and seek, first, the Mind of Christ, the will of God and live in the Spirit and let the Light of the Living Water flow through our veins and radiate in those around us. This is what we are called to do, what we are called to be. We are called to be Ambassadors of the Kingdom of God. Pray and share.
