As we learn about God’s plan for a healthy life, our sinful human nature pulls our attention to cravings that move us away from Jesus-following desires. This toxic selfishness may bring a raging internal conflict. The only effective peace treaty is found in Jesus. Everyone who calls themselves a Christian should read through Romans, think deeply about it, and pray through it. Have I truly considered why I may experience desires that are contrary to following Jesus? You cannot develop a strong faith without considering these issues. When your spiritual eyes are open to the truth of spiritual freedom found in Jesus it can be like fireworks of revelation. It is life-altering. Peace is possible. Freedom is possible.
