"Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You." - Psalm 119 V11

"He must increase, but I must decrease." - John 3 V30

When someone believes in the Lord Jesus Christ and receives Him as Lord and Saviour, from that very moment that person is provided the righteousness of Christ. But the sinful nature is not done away with yet. We all still have the sin nature and we are not free from being tempted by the Devil, but when we listen to the Holy Spirit of God, which is given to us at the time of our spiritual rebirth, the Holy Spirit guides us to grow in our walk with the Lord and let the nature of Christ increase within us and our self nature decrease. A believer takes no pleasure in sin for the Word of God is hidden in our heart and the things of this world, even though it may still be enticing, is not what we long for. Do you have the Lord Jesus Christ in your heart? Is He increasing and are you are decreasing? Cling to the Lord Jesus and let not the world have any part in you. Praise God!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
