Break the Cycle

break cycleAs he stands in the corner talking to his mom over his shoulder, little Denise the Menace says, “I guess saying ‘I’m sorry’ over and over…isn’t helping.”
There is freedom in choice, but not in consequence, no matter how many times you say, “I’m sorry.”
Jesus will forgive us when we ask, but some choices result in immediate consequences. We lose our joy over saying something we shouldn’t. Money will fly from our checkbooks as the officer writes us up for running that red light.
Dennis is a boy a cartoonist created who is constantly getting into trouble where he always ends up saying he’s sorry. He’s a cartoon character, we are not. He was created to be like this, we were not. We were created in Christ with a new nature, His, and a new mind, again his; therefore, we have been given the ability to break this sin-confession-sin cycle.
Pick up the biblical tools Jesus gave you – the ability to think and choose His way of living life – and start exercising them by faith today. Do this and you’ll do what’s pleasing to Jesus, keep your joy, and spend less time asking for forgiveness. There is so much more to talk with Him about than, “Lord, forgive me.”
