John 8:31-32 (KJV) reads, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; and ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” 
Johnny discovered that a particular sin would not go away after much confession and prayer, so he decided to study the life of Jesus since he knew that Jesus never sinned; he wanted to know how Jesus did it. During his study, he discovered that the reason Jesus never sinned was because he always obeyed his Father. After his discovery, he made up his mind to always obey every instruction God gives him and also decided to spend his time praying for grace to obey God instead of praying to overcome that particular sin.

Today, many Christians like Johnny have a sin that they struggle with. They want to be free and have tried all that they could but are not successful, so they have decided to live with it and keep asking for forgiveness whenever they indulge in it.

If you want to be free, study the word of God to know his commandments and make up your mind to obey them. Secondly, make sure you obey the personal instructions that God gives you. The more you are able to obey God, the freer from sin you become.

Go into today knowing that freedom from sin does not come by trying to overcome sin. Rather, it comes by obeying God’s instructions. It is only those who are submitted to God that have the power to resist the devil (James 4:7). The more submitted you are, the more powerful you become.

Prayer: Father, please give me the power to obey you in all things in Jesus’ name, amen!
—Dr. Emmanuel James
