LET GO OF THE SIN

1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.

God doesn't want us to hold onto, and struggle with sin in our lives. He wants us to live obediently to His word. Yes when we stumble, He teaches us to repent from our sins ( confess and turn from the sin); as we do He instantly forgives us. He offers us purity through His forgiveness. Nothing we can do on our own can or will purify us even if we try hard enough. God is the only way!

He wants us to be in the right relationship with Him, we do this by continually asking for forgiveness when we sin. We should never think we are not worthy of being forgiven because we may struggle at times with the same type of sin. As we repent and ask, God gives us the ability to resist that sin the next time. We get stronger and stronger to resist the temptation in the future.

  1. This is very true. We must get, brush ourselves and continue striving for Christ.

  2. Absolutely. The Bible says in 2 Cortinthians 12:9,"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me." No matter how strong the temptation to sin is, for as long as we stay in His word, we are able to resist sin by His grace.

    Bless you and thank you for taking the time to read and to share your comment.
