It is impossible for any person to live a sinless life. Only Jesus Christ could do so! But it is possible to lead an undefeated life. Only Jesus Christ can empower you to do so!
The recent and sad exposure of millions of people who used the Ashley Madison website has resulted in many families being devastated and many lives being ruined. Many are professing Christians.
I know of one friend who was so shamed he took his own life. He was, most certainly, a Christian man. He lived in the same world and heard the same Word as we all do. Perhaps he sang the same song we all sing, “Trust and obey, for there is no other way to be happy in Jesus—but to trust and obey!” Like many he went to church, studied the Bible, and even taught others to do the same. But the lure of this world defeated him. He gave in and succumbed. He was caught in the crossfire! The titanic tug o’ war! The “caught between the rock and a hard place!” The “rock” is the Word of God—the “seed” of life. The “hard place” is where the seed falls. Our world is a tough place to sow our seed. Weeds are everywhere and the ground upon which it falls is getting harder all the time. So, many moms and dads today have an epic battle on their hands trying to deepen the roots of their sons and daughters so that when the wind blows they will be less likely to bend, crack and even split down the middle. Trees die when they do.
We are a dying people being blown about by the winds of change and challenge. We have become the subjects of the “courts of public opinion,” and this is a dangerous place to be.
The heart of man cannot be trusted.
And so the problem we all have is the proverbial problem posed by the predicament. God’s Word has the answer. Jesus told us to be “in” the world but not “of” the world.
How does this work? I think he was telling us to lead “distinctive” lives not “separate” lives.
How do we do this? This world in which we live is imploding. Believers are now faced with a downward spiral politically, socially, and morally. It seems that everyday’s news brings yet another headline of yet another husband, wife, son or daughter who has been defeated by the enemy. And all of us can be. We are all sinners saved only by the grace of God. In fact, the only difference between the best of us and the worst of us is the grace of God. [Click to Tweet!] This is why I have written this short book “Undefeated.”
I just believe in the power of God working in the heart of man. I believe there is hope for us. I believe God means what he says and says what he means. I believe you and I can trust God. I am convinced you can lead an undefeated life. You and I can be successful and we can live a full and meaningful life.
Above all else, I believe we can live an entire life worthy of all God has entrusted us with. We can be faithful in marriage and our sons and daughters can look at us with gratitude for lives lived with honor, integrity, and service. We can be forgiven–yes, even when we have fallen and succumbed. There is a new beginning [Click to Tweet!] and a new day and bright tomorrow. As my dear friend Dr. Billy Graham has said all around the world, “the future is as bright as the promises of God.” I believe it.
