We Are Equipped

Do you ever worry that you just don’t have what it takes to stay pure? Do you feel like you lack the strength to live the holy life God has called you to live? I know I do.

The Bible calls us to be holy in everything we do, and this can be a daunting challenge, especially in today’s society where sex sells and we are constantly bombarded with immodesty and immorality. The world is telling us that impurity is not only okay, but it is an expectation and a requirement to fit in and be popular. It’s no wonder we feel overwhelmed so often!

One of the beauties of being a Christian, however, is that God has equipped us with the necessary tools to fight the world’s perceptions. Once in Christ, we have the Holy Spirit living inside of us enabling us to live the pure and holy lives God has planned for us. Through the Holy Spirit, we have been given the gifts of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control - all of which are tools that equip us to battle our natural sinful desires and the sinful norms of the world we live in.

When you feel discouraged in your attempts to remain pure and holy, remember that the Bible says that “those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature.” You are equipped!
