Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Genesis 4 & 5)
“Ruling Over Sin”
Text: Genesis 4:7
“If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
“Ruling over sin,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God told Cain that “sin’s desire is toward you, but you should Rule Over It!
This is the fact of our fallen nature; we are born in sin, inheriting the sin nature of Adam.
But God gave Cain a choice! He could rule over the sin of pride at the door of his heart - by “doing well,” with confession and repentance, and offering the proper sacrifice like his brother Abel offered.
Cain refused, hardened his heart, and became the first murderer of mankind.
Listen up Warrior! We must maintain a proper mindset regarding sin! It’s desire is to kill, steal, and destroy you and I. (John 10:20).
We are at War with sin and our Rules of Engagement demand that We Take No Prisoners! All sin Must Die! Ooooh Rah!
The Only Way you and I can Rule Over Sin is to Have our Commander and King Jesus Christ RULE OVER YOU AND I.
In other words, without God as our Master we’ll be slaves to sin! (Rom.6:16-18).
When Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, HATE sin - Confess It - Repentant Of It - and Rule Over It; it shall not have dominion over You! You Are A Warrior of God! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
