Do you want to see the manifested glory of God in your life? The zeal of God to answer our prayers and save us is stirred up when we declare war on the sin in our lives. The crossing of the Jordan River in the Old Testament, and the baptism in the Jordan River in the New Testament, symbolize this repentance. After this declaration of war, circumcision–the cutting off of all human ability or self-help–paves the way for God to step in and bring the victory. Have you made peace with your sin, or is it your enemy? If sin is your enemy, are you fighting it by trying harder, or have you turned the battle over to Jesus?
