I clearly remember my joy after being born again....satan would never again tempt me.<quoted text>
....I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.) John 10:10
The history since the Garden of Eden is that humanity has fallen, and is subject to the prince of the air(Satan) in this world. Each of us fall short of the glory of God, and need God's help, by His Mercy and Justice to make us acceptable in His sight. This is Only through Jesus Christ.
Accepting Jesus as personal Savior, in mind, heart and body, each of us is tempted, and come up against Satan, fallen angels, demons, physical limitations and errors in judgment in this world. But in singleminded devotion to Jesus Christ, we are able to withstand all temptation, and be more than conquerers. This will require personal sacrifice on our part, and especially me, as I am sorely tempted, and assaulted. But such is to be expected for those living the Beatitudes with blessedness given to them by God.
I keep on the path of repentance, and sometimes get a slap to wake me up. But I need it. And God who strikes, does heal. He is the Physician to my soul and body. The Shepherd and Teacher.
I was dead wrong!!!!! His attacks intensified......he hated to lose me...I was one of his favorite sinners!!!!!
