When I sing this song at karaoke it reminds me of a grown man who is unable to walk away from a bad relationship. I don’t know why that would be, but I’ve seen it many times.
Recently I discovered in Psalm 101 a prayer that is directed at a nation that is in danger from corrupting influences of deserting the disciplines that have made our nation great. And I believe the family is our (and God’s) most sacred institution.
Paul was arguably the greatest Evangelist in the history of the church. And certainly, the most prolific New Testament writer. Then how could he also seem to be battling personal sin?
The “Law of Sin and Death” relies on us to maintain our own individual morality. So we depend on the flesh controlling the flesh. From the outside that may look successful. But it falls short of perfection, which is the standard under the law.
In spite of our battle with sin we are still “unblamable and unreprovable in his sight”. We not only have hope, but a sure hope, an assurance of our salvation and a home prepared for us in Heaven. Dwelling on this point and the joy we share with the saints is like driving down the highway and staying in the lane.
