It is the only way in which I can ever kill it!

“In all these things we are more than conquerors, through Him who loved us!” Romans 8:37

We go to Christ for forgiveness–and then too often look to the ourselves for power to fight our sins. 

Christian! Take your sins to Christ’s cross, for the old man can only be crucified there! 

The only weapon to fight sin with, is the spear that pierced the side of Jesus!

To give an illustration: You want to overcome an angry temper–how do you begin? It is very possible you have never tried the right way of going to Jesus with it. How did I get salvation? I came to Jesus just as I was, and I trusted Him to save me. I must kill my angry temper in the same way–it is the only way in which I can ever kill it! I must go to the cross with it, and say to Jesus, “Lord, I trust You to deliver me from it.”

Are you covetous? Do you feel the world entangle you? You may struggle against this evil as long as you wish–but if it is your besetting sin, you will never be delivered from it in any way but by the blood of Jesus. Take it to Christ! Tell Him: “Lord, I have trusted You, and You save Your people from their sins. Lord, this is one of my besetting sins–save me from it!” 

You must be conquerors through Him who has loved you, if conquerors at all.
