The Headless Chicken Won't Last...

Let's keep this real simple today.
I choose Jesus. I experience a death and a new birth. However just like the expression "running around like a chicken with your head cut off" the "old man of sin" - the person you were before you chose Jesus - refuses to give up that easily. Like a dying chicken with no head your old nature continues to run around trying to wreak havoc. Do not allow this to trouble you. It is normal.
7:24 "O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin.
8:1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit."
What satan doesn't want you to realize is that his successes here and there with causing you to relapse are completely powerless.
They have no bearing, no effect, on your standing with Jesus. You are not less married during a fight than you are during happy times. The only way to be not married is to choose to not be married anymore. If you still choose Him you have nothing to fear. He who has begun a good work in you will be faithful to complete it and in the meantime His perfect life covers your relapses. Eventually the headless chicken will collapse never to rise again.
 Jesus will complete His masterpiece because Love never fails...
