I Am Like The Apostle Paul

I am a christian and one thing that I fail in my daily life is that, I sometimes tell myself that I won't do certain things but it happens that I always do what I don't want do and I never do what I think of doing.

How can I do to live a full Christian Life?

Hard to tell from your question. But maybe you are relying on your own power to control your behavior rather than letting the spirit work thru you. Pray for God for help breaking your independant spirit. I did this I had a real hard couple months but came out of it completely humbled, realizing my need for Him.

This very problem is what makes Romans ch. 7 so special to me. It shows us how even the Apostle Paul had to contend with these same problems of the flesh. Know that, as long as we are in our unredeemed bodies, we will fight this fight every day. Read Romans ch.8 also, it tells us that there is victory for this battle through Jesus Christ our Lord. Keep your focus on Jesus Christ, and He will strengthen you.

Israel had to once a year, go in an offer a sacrifice for their sins. Christ came and bacame the perfect lamb of God, John 1:29. Paul writes how we have been forgiven, past tense. Christ paid it once and for all. That does not mean will be perfect, but Christ paid it all.

NVB: Thanks for your kind words. I thought I was in the "doghouse" since our last contact. Glad you are back!

Being a Christian does not mean being perfect. The longer I have been a Christian, the more I see my imperfections. None of us could make it without the salvation of Jesus. Pray and take baby steps. I struggle with this too, and so do most Christians.

Good solid advice Pierre! We can all take a lesson from that, thank you.

It would be foolish not to anticpate relapses. So be ptient with yoursel (not slack). If you fall, dust off and move on, ever keeping the eyes on Jesus!
Remember Th. Edison. We are told that he "failed 3000 times in his effort to perfext the light bulb. But did he really FAIL? NO! and neither will you!

Really seek transformation: but realize you need utside help and transformation takes time. To this end fervently seek God's power to resist. In your prayer tell Him that you are powerless and to please remove your wrong desires with a desire to do what's right, and not to act on it righy there and then!
It will take time! There are no overnight 12 step programs and the Bibles talks about SANCTIFICATION as the work of a lifetime. TBC

I have been there also. This may help:
Accept God's grace: there is no way you will "overcome" your bad habits as long as you are cvered in guilt/shame. If you are serious and committed to overcome, Jesus will grant you His grace/forgivness before you actually overcome your bad habits. TBC
