Your Enemy


A few weeks ago, I was watching a program on TV, and a pastor was discussing with a few married couples, issues they were having in their relationships.  

The pastor made this comment, "Attack the thing that comes into your marriage that causes problems as if it were an enemy."

The pastor's comment got me thinking.  If I changed the marriage scenario to my Christian walk, the same statement would apply.  

"Attack the thing that comes into your Christian walk that causes problems as if it were an enemy." 

What enemies have you knowingly or unknowingly given a comfortable place to take up residence in your life?  

Could it be the enemy of old wounds that when properly fertilized breeds bitterness? 

So, what are the things in your spiritual walk that need to be identify as an enemy?  

In Roman 8:12-18 in the Living Bible it says... 


So, dear brothers, you have no obligations whatever 
to your old sinful nature 
to do what it begs you to do.
For if you keep on following it 
you are lost and will perish, 
but if through the power of the Holy Spirit 
you crush it and its evil deeds, 
you shall live.

Once you identify your enemy, deal with it accordingly.   Kill your sin before it kills you—it’s your enemy.
