Distancing from sinFlorence Jornsen
Someone said and I quote, “believers are not sinless, they should sin less” but I say unto you, distant yourself from sin evermore“.
1Jn 2:1 KJV
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
There are various schools of thought about living above sin or being sinless. Some say it is impossible; so as to justify their sins. Others who determine to carry their cross daily say, “living a sin free life is possible” what does the Bible say about this? “
1Jn 3:9 KJV
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.” The Bible says if you are born of God, that is if God is your father, you cannot commit sin period. Why? Because the seed of God is in you; you have the DNA of God, you are a replica of your father, if your father cannot sin, you cannot sin as well. Can a fish fly? No. How about a dog, can it fly? But a bird can fly right? Why can’t a fish fly? It can’t fly because it is not in its nature to fly. A fish is designed to swim. No child of God is a sinner and no sinner is a child of God.
Who are you?
You were shapened in iniquity and conceived in sin, that was who you were before you were begotten of God. Now that you are a child of God, you cannot commit sin. You are born again by an incorruptible seed, by the word of God. The first step to living a sin free life is to be born again, that means to receive the life of Christ in you, this step is called salvation. The next step is sanctification by the word of God. Living daily by the word of God. To be holy, you must practice the holy word of God, read it, hear it, lay it up in your heart, meditate on it, observe to do according to what is written. Now you can do this through the help of the Holy spirit and by the grace of God. The anointing will teach you all truth and the grace will teach you to distant yourself from sin.
The purpose of the writing, preaching and teaching of God’s Word is to help believers in Christ to live above sin. Always attend the fellowship of believers so that you can hear God’s word and increase your faith which will in turn enable you to please God.
Prayer focus : O God let your holy spirit nudge me to do what is right in all circumstances and let your grace teach me to say no to all ungodliness amen!
