Our Biggest Enemy

As they traveled along the road, they came to some water and the eunuch said, 
“Look, here is water. What can stand in the way of my being baptized? ” (Acts 8:36 NIV)

Do we realize that are often the biggest obstacle to our growth? If sin is anything that obstructs our view of God, we need to realize that we are often that obstruction.
  • Our pride that prevents submission
  • Our past that prevents transparency & intimacy 
  • Our obstinance that prevents humility
  • Our adherence to an ill-fashioned vision that keeps us from God's vision
  • Our confidence in our self-control and will power that only betray us at the moment of crisis
  • Our fear of the unknown that prevents us from stepping out in bold faith.
When we realize we are the active inhibitors to God's work in our lives we can resolve to stop stopping ourselves and let God start working.
