The One You Feed 🐺

You’re not condemned, your loved by God so don’t live in condemnation (Romans 8:1)! Hopefully, I got your attention! Condemnation is one of the enemy’s favorite weapons. He’ll use anything—the flesh, the media, our past, and even fellow believers—to feed into our sense of unworthiness and fear of punishment. There’s an old Nanticoke Indian tribe parable referred to as ‘The Tale of Two Wolves’: a boy asks his grandfather about his internal struggle between good and evil. The grandfather explains that there are in fact two wolves battling inside of him. “Which one wins?” the boy asks. The grandfather responds: “The one you feed.” This parable is not written in the Bible, however it powerfully illustrates Paul’s point recorded in Romans 8:3-6. Beloved, when we set our minds on the flesh, we naturally begin to feed into its desires. But the opposite is also true: when we set our minds on the Spirit, we begin to walk by the Spirit and give glory to our Father in heaven. I get it!! We battle with this negative opposition daily, but we must remember God’s Word is “living and active and it’s sharper than any two edge sword” (Hebrews 4:12). So when condemnation begins to surface it’s ugly face from our flesh, the devil, or the world, we can boldly proclaim “there is therefore now NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1). As it stands, Jesus paid our sin debt- in -full and He rose victoriously so that we can live in the depths of His victory!!Thank you Jesus, hallelujah, and glory to God! Yes, we have the freedom in Christ to live free from condemnation now and forever! No gift is more liberating than this!!
