Design Inspiration: BMS Founder Quotes are thoughts and revelations from my prayer time and lessons learned from conversations and sermons - same as the BMS IG posts. This Christian shirt was a lesson - A bit or maybe more than a bit of pride had me thinking it was me and my desire to please God that kept me from a life of sin. But that was just a sense of self righteousness...
I am only righteous through the cleansing from Jesus Christ. I don't live a sinless life nor could I. But I am not a slave to sin. Self control is a fruit of the Spirit. Self control comes from the Holy Spirit.
But a woman, named Grace, I just met on FB said it best
"I am not a slave to sin, although I do sin, I am convicted and lead to repent and instead of sin being the first thing I do when I awake, I NOW seek HIS WORD, I absolutely have to spend time in prayer and in reading and asking HIM to use me for HIS glory...
I am a slave to Christ and when I fail and I ask God why HE gently and lovingly reminds me that I am forgiven, I am set free and most importantly that He has started a work in me which HE will continue until it's completion. If I tried to walk in the WORD I would surely fail, but Christ in me does the work of a righteous walk which I'm incapable of...
I can't stop myself from sinning but so long as I stay in prayer to my sinless SAVIOR and stay in His WORD well then HE does the work in me that essentially makes me sin less. I literally have nothing to boast about from start until this very moment it is ALL the work of Christ ALONE that I may deny myself more and more and be consumed by HIM more and more."
