Soul Snack 9/9 ... Peter's Correct
Each day of my life my sinful past endeavours to capture my currently pure and sin free future.
My desires for sin arises again. They are aroused by memory cues I 'stumble upon.'
Again then my sin is still held before me. Circumstantial refreshers to old ways present themselves anew. Guilt is thrust upon me and I am challenged to accept my powerlessness to resist yet again.
Seeking again to master me, sin approaches with a double assault. A two front attack of both covetousness and condemnation assail.
Will my past ever release me? Can I ever find a peaceful present? Will I be able to keep the still pure future pure? (For, this is what I want!)
O, where can I turn to for power but you O, Lord! Deliver me safely to that day when I will be pure and righteous before you. AMEN
Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. John 6:68
Peter got it right.
