Revolution through Jesus Christ! It can be Done!

Romans 7:24, 25a
O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

These verse have helped me to actually make revolutionary change! If you were to read the context of these verse you would find that Paul the Apostle was talking about the battle that goes on within each of us between good and evil. Paul describes it something like this:
When I try to do good I can't, and instead I do something wrong. When I try not to do something wrong the carnal nature in me will not allow me to do right. How can I get out of this conundrum!
Sunday I preached a message from these verses, and it was most definitely for me! It seemed everyone got something from the message, but I personally acted upon these convictions Sunday evening. But first let me explain what I'm describing above.

We try to make resolutions every year, and almost every year we through the resolutions out the back door. This year I want not to make resolutions, but to make a revolution in my life! Like Paul's description of our human state I am often stuck in this rut. Resolutions are made by individuals, and often tried to be enforced by individuals, but a revolution takes more than one person! It might start with one, but it spreads and soon a group of people are raising up and making permanent change!

Notice what the first part of verse 25 said: "...Through Jesus Christ our Lord." We Can have a revolution in our lives, make these changes and maintain these changes, but we must have help! We must have a group, and you and Jesus definitely makes a group! Romans 8:31 tells us that If God be for us who can be against us!

So, if you want to jump on the band wagon with me to start a personal revolution first you must get a hold of Jesus! Repentance is the start of a revolution! Turn from the direction you are taking, and turn unto Jesus, and he will lead you into a personal revolution!

It can be done! You can do it!

Your for a revolution
