Dealing with Problems

That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:3) 
Experiencing fellowship with Jesus Christ is absolutely essential if we want to overcome our fleshly struggles with sin. Because we are imperfect human beings, we will never be able to deal with our shortcomings on our own. Therefore, we need to spend time with Jesus to become more like Him. 
Let’s look at three problems we deal with as humans. Ardent fellowship with the Lord will help us in the midst of these problems:  
1. We have an academic problem – We don’t want to know the truth. 
You know in your knower that there is a God. If you don’t believe in God and you don't have fellowship with God, you have an academic problem. You don't want the truth. If you believe the truth about God, you will live differently. 
2. We have a will problem – We resist the truth. 
Do you realize that many people resist the truth? It can be right in front of them. They could have all of the academic and historical data in front of them, but they choose not to believe the truth about Christ. Truth is truth! The reason why many people don't have fellowship with God is that they literally resist the truth. They can’t have fellowship with other people like God desires because they resist the truth. 
3. We have a sin problem – We rebel against the truth. 
We do not meet the expectations and requirements that God wants. We are all sinners. If you took your good works and your bad works and weighed them, your bad works would out-weigh your good works. Our natural instinct is to rebel against the truth. That is why we need fellowship with Christ, so that we can overcome our flesh.

I used to think that if I lived my life for Christ that I wouldn't be able to keep having the fun with my worldly friends. When I finally gave Jesus my whole life to live for Him, then I started to have satisfying fun with my new Christian friends ❤.
