Pastor Mark: Blogging Towards Sunday

the war within

Don’t Live for God;  live with God, through His Son, by the Inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

God in Three Persons, Blessed Trinity!


Robert Louis Steven’s wrote  a classic tale of the“Strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.  It has been made into various movies and plays.  And, it’s really a frightening story, far more than most think.  Dr. Jekyll realizes that he is a mixture of good and evil and that a civil war rages within him.  He decides to concoct a potion, which will solve this dilemma.  If only drinking a potion would fixeverything!

In the letterof Romans, Paul writes about this eternal, internal war.  Fortunately, we are not left to our own devices.  “Who will set me free from this body of death?  Thanks be to God who gives us the victory through Jesus Christ our Lord!” 

Yours in the Journey, Mark
