Sin is terrible and sin is bad – but the solution to sin is the cross and Jesus’ grace (Rom.6:14) – not your attention, not your focus, not your guilt and not your self-condemnation.
Sadly, so many people separate themselves from the Lord and beat themselves up because they still carry the guilt and shame of past and present sins and short comings. Our focus on our short comings will drive us crazy and result in double mindedness about who we are as children of God. Let it be known today that the Word of God clearly states:
Rom 8:1 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.
Lets stop condemning and disqualifying ourselves, lets stop our anguish over our failures. Stop punishing yourself, or expecting punishment for something that Jesus has already paid for, been punished for, and dealt with on the cross. To focus on your sin instead of focusing on your righteousness is tantamount to denying the effectiveness of the cross.
Rom 3:22 This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
You’r sins, past present and future are forgiven (Heb.10:17). Learn to live in God’s wonderful state of grace by focusing on Jesus. Knowing Him, trusting Him and abiding in His grace empowers you to say “NO” to sin and to overcome (Titus 2:12). Believe the Word of God as Jesus says to you “The solution to sin is grace!”
Rom.6:14 For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.
