Christianity is a fight. To paraphrase Paul in Galatians 5:17:
“Our human nature desires what is contrary to God’s
nature, and God’s nature contrary to the human nature – so you don’t do what you want.”
Here is what he means. There are always going to be seasons in the Christian’s life where it seems you are not producing spiritual fruit. That’s OK.
Christianity is a “bar fight” remember. Before you become a Christian, you are wrestling with God on the outside, where the fight is obvious. When you become a Christian the fight goes on in the inside. Either way it’s still a fight.
We Christians may have the outward appearance that all is calm and collected at times but that’s because the deep wrestle is happening internally.
If you are “wrestling” with things this week… good! That’s the sign of Spiritual Life!
