Too often we as Christians are satisfied to sit passively by while we struggle in our lives or in sin, yet never do anything about it but complain or wonder “why me” or have the “whoa is me” mentality. The Apostle Paul addresses the lifestyle that the Christian must adhere to in I Corinthians 9:27, “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” Living the Christian life takes discipline and a mindset of all out war against sin in our lives. Everyday is a battle that we need to be prepared through Jesus Christ to undertake. This is precisely the message that Dr. John Piper is preaching on in the clip below. It is taken from a sermon called “How to Kill Sin, Part II” You can listen to the full sermon here: http://www.desiringgod.org/ResourceLibrary/MediaPlayer/84/Audio/ but if the excerpt below doesn’t get youmotivated to make changes in your life and stop sitting idly by, then I don’t know what will.
