The devil tries to get us to believe that God is holding out on us, and that His goodness to us is only partial. We sin whenever we fall into the lie that God is not enough.

When we feel tempted to sin, we have the opportunity to get away with murder. As Paul says, we can put to death the misdeeds of the body by God's Holy Spirit.


How To Get Away With Murder

"Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live." - Romans 8:12-13.

Every believer needs to have a mean streak. Not against people, but against every last thing that is anti-Christ. We should hate pornography. We should hate gluttony. We should hate anything that comes between us and heaven. And as such, as Paul said, be a murderer.

But when you murder, don't look at anything, but in the mirror. When we have an impulse to sin, we have a chance to get away with murder by putting our flesh to death by God's Spirit.
