The Answer Is Jesus

Paul was honest about his struggles. Looking at his own life, he concluded that he was “rotten through and through.” This great apostle confessed, “No matter which way I turn, I can’t make myself do right…When I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway.”

In spite of his desire to do the right thing, sin still had control: “I am not really the one doing it; the sin within me is doing it.” He felt that he was a slave to sin and “there is another law at work within me that is at war with my mind.”

What was the answer? Jesus. Jesus gave him the power and ability he needed. He helped him overcome the grip that sin had on his life.

Throughout history, men and women from every nation have experienced the same struggles. They thought they could change through their own efforts, by working harder or making a decision. But, as Paul found, we cannot make these transformations on our own. All of us need Jesus!

Today you may feel trapped by sin, habits, or circumstances. In spite of your efforts, you may feel defeated. Weighed down by problems and haunted by memories, you may face troubling temptations. You may be worried about your needs, preoccupied by your job, or anxious about the future.

The Bible assures you that, for every question, “the answer is in Jesus Christ.” You need His strength and power to achieve victory. You cannot do it on your own.

Right now, tell Him about your feelings and needs. Then, surrender your life to Him, and allow Him to give you the victory you need. Jesus is your answer today.
