End of the Sin Chronicles

Standard

Seven Deadly SinsOr 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.

Prayer:

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!

  1. As someone once said, “We are sinners, in the hands of an angry God!” This sermon started what is known as the Great Awakening.

  2. Amen Felecia. We spent some time in confession last night in our prayer meeting, and both the confessing and the reassurance of God’s willingness to forgive were, and are, so freeing.

    Our invitation to the throne of God is couched in our need for help with sin. When we are tempted and need mercy, and grace to help in time of need we are called to come into His presence. Because of the blood of Jesus, His perfect life and His immeasurable sacrifice, we can have confidence and come boldly before the throne – as sinners needing mercy and grace.

    For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin. Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. – Hebrews 4:15-16 NASB

    We think we need to come to God’s throne as holy as possible, but no. We come when we need that edge to beat our temptation.

    Big blessings, sis.
