freedomPerfection is not simply the absence of sin. It’s the addition of Jesus, who is our holiness (1 Cor. 1:30).
Sanctification is a process where the Spirit transforms our lives into the image of Jesus by exchanging our character with Jesus; thus making us holy or perfect. It’s a matter of focus. Am I allowing my mind to focus on not sinning or on Jesus to become more like Him?
Here’s something to think about. “Am I so focused on stopping something that, in a way, I’m giving more thought to the enemy; or, am I focused on asking for the Spirit to help me hear Jesus’ voice and give me the strength to follow Jesus, the one who defeats my enemy? As we become more like Jesus, our sin automatically is removed!
Today, trust the Spirit to empower you to make the necessary contrary faith choices to practice the truths Jesus gives you through His Word. This is not a solo journey, either; but one walked with other believers. Remember, it was the Spirit who put you into Jesus’ church – a group of people called out by Jesus to move toward Him together – the moment you became a child of God (Jn. 1:12).
Choose to be held accountable, by being in a Bible Impact Group, to using the biblical process the Spirit uses to sanctify us – the FREEdom process. Let someone pray for you to stay focused on and become more like Jesus today everywhere you go (James 5:16).
