Free From Sin

Have you ever asked yourself the question, "How can I live a life free from sin?"  Well, if so, you are not alone.  The Apostle Paul, the greatest apostle who ever lived, who wrote two-thirds of the books in the New Testament said,  “I want to do what is right, but I can’t. I want to do what is good, but I don’t. I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway,” (Romans 7:18 NLT).  Even the Apostle Paul understood that there is a "war in our members."  But God in His infinite mercy provided through the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, the power for us to overcome sin.  Sin leads only to death, but the gift of God leads to eternal life -- the quality of life that God intended for you to live even on this earth (Romans 6:23).

God in His unfailing love towards us wants us free from the torment of sin.  The Spirit of God dwelling in the believer yearns over us -- He yearns to be welcome in our lives with a jealous love.  We must humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord.  As we draw near to God and are deeply penitent and even weep over our disloyalty to Him, James 4:8 says that He will draw near to us!  Christian, sin makes your life insignificant.  Look at this awesome promise that God makes to us if we are willing to repent of our sins:  "Humble yourselves (feeling very insignifcant) in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up and make your lives significant],"  James 4:10, Amplified.  Praise God today for His infinite mercy!  Thank Him for His great love and amazing grace!
