Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2 Samuel 1)
“Rule Over sin or sin Will Rule Over You.”
Text: 2 Samuel 1:16
“So David said to him, “Your blood is on your own head, for your own mouth has testified against you, saying, ‘I have killed the LORD’s anointed.’”
The maxim “Rule over sin or sin will rule over you” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
The end of Saul’s tragic life is an example of a life ruled over by sin. He came to the throne humble but he left hardened against God and man; because sin ruled over his life.
The Bible sees sin as “a living thing.” God told Cain that “sin lies crouching at the door desiring you, but you should rule over “it.” (Gen.4:7).
And James also treats sin as a living thing, in (James 1:14-15). Paul talks about sin as a living thing in (Romans 7:8-25); and tells us we should not let “it” reign over us in (Romans 6:12-14)
For over 20 years David grew a Shepherd’s Heart refusing to raise his hand against the Lord’s Anointed; ruling over sin, except for a year and 4 months in Gath. David shows you and I that even mighty Warrior’s pursuing the heart of their King have failures at times; but we confess, repent, and get back in the fight for righteousness AGAIN!
Failure Is An Event, Warrior! NOT A Destination!
Saul made his Failure his Destination because he refused to repent, and Allowed sin to rule over him for most of these 20 years of his life.
Take a lesson from these men Warrior!
Our Commander Jesus Christ has conquered sin once and set you and I free from the law of sin and death.
Yes, there are enemy snipers that will hit you and I with a round of pride, lust, or doubt; but our Corpsman Holy Spirit will be there to patch us up with the Word of God and get us back in the fight! Ooooh Rah!
Warriors Rule Over sin At All Times! We Will Not Give Place To The devil, even for a moment! Warrior’s Rule In Righteousness In The Power Of The Holy Spirit! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
