Or is it?
I’m sure I could go on regaling you with my sinning ways and I dare say you’ve thought about some of your own sins these past few weeks. Let us remember that we are all sinners. That we are not perfect. But that there is hope for us in Jesus Christ.
“Therefore, no condemnation now exists for those in Christ Jesus …” ~ Romans 8:1
Why not? Why aren’t we, Christ Followers, condemned because of our sin? Because we have a good and perfect God who died for us. To cleanse us. To forgive us when we repent. A God who through His death, broke the chains of sin that bind us. We have been gifted with the ability not to sin because we have the Spirit of God inside us.
I must remember that when the urge to sin overcomes me it’s not a forgone conclusion that I will sin.
My chains have been broken.
And if you are in Christ – yours have too.
Lord. You said in 1 John 1:9 that ‘If we confess our sins, You are faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.’ Please never let this promise fade away. Continue to convict me when I think of sinning or do sin and then lovingly forgive me when I confess and repent of my sin. Thank you gracious Father. Amen.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
