EDIFIER: What to do about sin in our life?
What should we do about SIN in our life? You DO have sin in your life because the bible says that we all sin and come short of the glory of God. ROM. 3:23.
In fact, the bible says that if we deny that we are sinners, we are liars and the truth is not in us. 1 JOHN 1:8.
However, the fact that we have sin in our life does not mean that we are left in a hopeless condition and must constantly bear the guilt of our sin.
There are various ways that men try to deal with sin.
- Some people try to DENY their sin and pretend that they are not guilty. But, the scriptures above and many others clearly refute those claims. We must accept the fact that we do sin.
- Others try to HIDE their sin. It cannot be done. Numbers 32:23 informs us that our sins will find us out.
- We simply need to CONFESS our sins to God and REPENT of them. Then, we are told that we will be forgiven of those sins and cleansed from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9. We should be so thankful that God is not only willing to forgive our sins but is anxious to do so.
Do you have sin in your life that you continue to carry about in your life? Why don’t you go to God in prayer and confess those sins and ask for His forgiveness? Then, you can rest in peace that you are not guilty of that sin anymore. The guilt has been removed through the blood of Christ.
TRUST GOD! MARCH ON TO VICTORY BY FOLLOWING HIS LEADERSHIP!
