Sometimes we have those difficult days where we revert back to our old ways. As a matter of fact, when we decide to put on the armour of new that’s when the devil would desire us more. He wants to take us away from Jesus and away from salvation. We’re battling two natures within us because we’ve decided to come ‘out of the darkness and into his wonderful light’ (Peter 2:9).

Remember what Christ said in John 15:5:

“If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit.”

Don’t stop fighting for the good.

Don’t ever stop believing that Jesus is the only way to salvation and eternal life.

Don’t take your eyes off Jesus.
