Well, where do I start with you? First off, let me say that I know you are already defeated by my Savior. He told me. 1.”…I have overcome the world!” Because of that, I know that 2.”… He who started a good work in me will see it to completion!” So starting from the stance of victory, let me tell you, sin; that you are already defeated because I will fight you ’til the day I go to see Jesus. 3.”The one who endures to the end will be saved.”… But you do get on my nerves. When I pray for days and weeks about you, and can’t seem to shake you, I trust that my Lord is working in my heart and burning you out of my spirit. And I will keep praying. I want to be right in the eyes of my Father. You know what, I am right in His eyes. Because the blood of His son, Jesus cleansed me once and for all. And the Holy Spirit within me is changing me. He is my Seal. He was given to me as a promise 4.”til the day of redemption!” And that day will come. So until then, I will fight, not only for my own soul, but for my family, fellow believers around the World and for humanity as a whole. Not only in prayer, but in the way I live my life; Resisting you ’til my last breath. Envy, wrath, resentment, laziness and gossip: I know I am not perfect, and occasionally I may take part in you for a moment. But I go in repentance to my Father, who forgives me through His son and I can be sure that because of my relationship with Him that I am free. Free from the hold you once had on me. Delivered from being your slave. You do not own me anymore. I write this letter to shed light on your schemes and to shame your advances on my life. You can not have my soul. The blood of Jesus is against you! Knowing this, you try to get at my weaknesses, but 5.”greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world,” and 6.”no weapon formed against me shall prosper.” I know that I am weak. I know I’m not perfect. So I rely on Jesus every day because 7.”His grace is sufficient for those weaknesses!” Lastly, I know you won’t give up. But know this: My confidence is in the One who is 8.”able to keep me from falling.” Goodbye, sin. I will no longer stay with you. My place is with my Savior.
