Jesus is Lord of the ugly stuff There is a war in a lot of us! ‘For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live.’ (Romans 8v13)
If ‘Jesus is Lord’ in our lives, we need to actively NOT follow our sinful desires: lust, greed, selfishness, disobedience, anger/hate, jealousy, bitterness etc. Instead, ask for and let God’s Spirit lead you in actions of righteousness. Why keep on living with the ugliness we carry when we mess up? Jesus’ way is not about hurting us; but giving us a FULL life. Is it not time to trust Him now?
