Everyday Struggles with Sin, Margy Tripp

"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."  

Hebrews 4:16

It's those everyday sins of the moment. I didn't get up planning to be impatient, or angry, or petty, or jealous, or unbelieving, or lying, or anxious, or driven to control people. The temptations arise in the heat of the moment. These are considered low-grade sins - like a low-grade fever - nothing to get alarmed about.

But these low-grade sins are our spiritual enemies. They rob us of joy and a sense of God’s presence with us. They sap our spiritual vitality and sully our testimony before our family and co-workers.

The solution to everyday struggles with sin is not changing behavior! The solution to everyday struggles with sin is a changed heart. Repentance is the only route to a changed heart. James 4:7 to 10 gives us the process for repentance. Contemplate these ten elements of repentance. They are the foundation for restoration. God RESTORES those who repent!

God has made generous provision for our everyday struggles with sin.

The Holy Spirit, saving grace through Christ’s perfect life, death and resurrection, the Scriptures, and prayer are resources to combat everyday struggles with sin.

We may claim the promise of I Corinthians 10:13, No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.

“The way out” is one of the greatest blessings we enjoy as a result of Christ’s work, described in Hebrews 4:16  Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Take your “everyday struggles with sin” to the throne of grace as the day begins. Don’t wait until the enemy is in your face. God is faithful. He will deliver when we cry out, but His purpose is that we put on his armor (Galatians 6), that we prepare our minds for action (1 Peter 1:13).

Blessings,
Margy Tripp

Getting to the Heart of Family Life, Dr. Tedd Tripp

"Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life."  

Proverbs 4:23

Every drive for meaning and significance originates in the heart. For both us and our children, the heart, with its passions and desires, sets the course of life.

All the problems of living that plague family life have their origin in the heart.

Jesus says, "What comes out of a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man 'unclean.' "  - Mark 7:20-23

Understanding that all of our problems have their origin in the heart is foundational for family life. The things we give our hearts to drive our choices.

The temptation, when things have gone wrong, is to correct behavior. We instinctively see behavior as the problem. That’s because we see behavior. We hear behavior. Behavior requires a response. Once we have made behavior the focus in correction and discipline, we open ourselves up to all the tricks and tools parents use to manage behavior.

When we head down the behavior management road, two things happen:

We miss the heart. When we forget that the heart is the wellspring of behavior, we fail to help ourselves and our kids identify the heart issues behind our sinful responses.

We also miss the gospel, because behaviorism by-passes the heart. Behaviorism focuses on behavior rather than the desires, fears, idols or passions of the heart.

If we remember that behavior mirrors the heart, then the route to lasting change for both our children and ourselves is the grace and power of the gospel.

One of the promises of the gospel is removing our stony hearts and giving us hearts of flesh – hearts that love God and others.

Blessings to you and your family,
Dr. Tedd Tripp

"And Elkanah, her husband, said to her, “Hannah, why do you weep? And why do you not eat? And why is your heart sad? Am I not more to you than ten sons?" - 1 Samuel 1:8

"Whoever sings songs to a heavy heart
    is like one who takes off a garment on a cold day,
