Our resources are:
Jesus, our Role Model: "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross" (Phil. 2:5-8). "The counsel of the LORD standeth for ever, the thoughts of His heart to all generations" (Ps. 33:11). "There are many devices in a man's heart; nevertheless the counsel of the LORD, that shall stand" (Prov. 19:21).
The Word of God, our Guide Book: "Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in Thy Word. Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept Thy Word. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep Thy Word (Ps. 119:11, 42, 67, 101; Acts 17:11; 1 Thes. 5:21). "Thy Testimonies also are my delight and my counsellors" (Ps. 119:24).
The Holy Spirit, our Counselor: "Howbeit when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself; but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and He will shew you things to come" (Jn. 16:13). "Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory" (Ps. 73:24). "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise" (Prov. 12:15).
By faith in Christ, we are freed from the penalty of sin; we are freed from the power of sin;
and one day soon, praise God, we shall be freed from the presence of sin!
