A walk to Repentance: Part I

Are you hesitant about saying how long you have known Jesus as your Lord and Saviour?

Well, If you are not, good for you. I have been and am still hesitant to tell how long I have supposedly known Jesus. I keep feeling that the years are not commensurate with my level of growth and intimacy with him.

My shortcomings are still glaring and there are still foxes. The little foxes seemed to have grown to big foxes. Shockingly, some foxes I did not know before I encountered Jesus have appeared (or should I say have been born?).

Then I ask, "What happened to the scripture, 'old things have passed away and all things have become new'?"

I once asked a friend as we discussed our battles, "Is the flesh greater than the spirit?"

I asked another, "Why is my growth so slow? Why am I such a slow learner?"

Why do I yield to the flesh so often? God has made a way of escape for every temptation, why on earth don't I take the ways all the time.

These are my ponderings and answers will be welcomed.
