AT WAR AND YET AT PEACE
It is true that I have sin in me, but it is pardoned. God has forgiven me all trespasses. I stand before Him in my Redeemer, Who undertook for me, and I am perfect in Him. The Father chose me in His Son: He looks upon the face of His beloved, and sees me in Him.
In Christ He is well pleased, so He is with me!
As He loves Christ – He loves me!
This is the glorious privilege which by faith I now enjoy. I deny sight and sense, and I believe the Word of God!
I adhere strictly to the Word of God concerning me, believing myself to be dead indeed unto sin in Christ, and in Him absolutely freed from guilt and condemnation.
The Father is at peace with me, and He loves me in His son, with the same love with which He loves Christ – His Father and my Father.
With this persuasion I go to war with my corruption. They are fighting against everything that is dear and precious to my soul. But having the promised grace of the almighty Savior for my help, I desire to set upon them in His name.
I am at war with sin but at peace in Christ!
