Our struggle with sin does not diminish the love that God has for His children. After He redeems our Spirit and we’re covered by the righteousness of Christ, our flesh is still in constant combat with our born-again Spirit. The Bible says: “For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.” (‭Galatians‬ ‭5:17‬) http://bible.com/59/gal.5.17.esv This is the truth in God’s Word. He is obviously aware of it and understands our need for help. Our Father doesn’t expect us to overcome our flesh alone. Just as we want our children to succeed, God wants to give us the tools to overcome any wickedness which prevents us from living victoriously.

When Jesus saves us, we become a part of God’s family. And–right there in the mess where He found us–He makes us His child. Wow! When we ask for His salvation, He freely gives it even though He knows all the crimes we will commit against His love in the future! His love is amazing. It’s the kind of love we have for our own children–multiplied times a number we can’t fathom. His love is perfect. He loved us before we knew or understood love! The Bible says: “In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. We love because he first loved us.” (1 John‬ ‭4:10, 19‬)

When we begin to comprehend the goodness of His love, He becomes our passion. He becomes the part of life we don’t want to live without. The experience of God’s love helps us understand that we are fully accepted by Him. Our life is transformed by confidence and love. God understands our battle with sin. He wants to fight it with us–not against us. When we daily repent and turn from our trespasses against His love, we draw near to Him. His presence is more satisfying than any sin! Oh, how much our good Father loves us!
