Day 5: Doing the right thing

Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.

James 4:17

The last few days were hard, it is like a struggle of the old man and the new, wrestling the demons of self and the born again identity and eventually like all born again Christian must come to a conclusion – die to self.

Doing what is right, is more important. The world will choose any other way than the right way because to be happy is more important than doing what is right. I googled it and I am shocked how many people will actually say that to be happy is more important than doing the right thing. Unfortunately, in God’s eyes, a born again Christian has only one value, that is to do the will of God. Following our example of Christ, despite the struggles of facing death on the cross for the sins of the world, the fear of being rejected by God on the cross when He bore our sins, and the death that awaits him after the horrible ordeals, Christ showed us that it is in Him, and us, to do what is right, do what is in the will of God even if it means death for us or trouble.
