Sin No More - Part 1

If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves & pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven& will forgive their sins and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14.

Friends God created us humans in His image. God is Holy and that means we were holy and clean when we were created. God walked and talked with Adam and Eve and had a great fellowship with them on a daily basis. How did this beautiful relationship snap? What caused human race to run away from the wonderful and blessed presence of God? It was SIN. Just as how light and darkness can never dwell together, God and SIN can never come together. Just as God and sin don’t co-exist, a child of God and sin cannot co-exist. Yes we who are called the sons and daughters of the living God can never co-exist with sin.

What is SIN?

1John 5:17 says “All wrongdoing is sin” & 1 John 3: 4 says, “….sin is lawlessness”. According to the Bible any wrongdoing or lawlessness is sin. God tells Cain in Genesis 4:7 “If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door, it desires to have you, but you must master it”. Whatever is not right with God is SIN. Sin is a deadly poison that kills the soul and the body. Ezekiel 18: 20 says “The soul who sins is the one who will die”.

What is the nature of Sin?

1. Sin is deceptive: Hebrews 3:13 warns us that none of us should be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. Sin misleads us and makes us to deviate from the right path. The limits.

2. Sin offers momentary pleasures: In Hebrews 11: 25 we read how Moses made the choice of what was right before God rather than the momentary pleasures. The Egyptian master Potiphar’s wife enticed Joseph for her momentary pleasure, but Joseph refused to yield to her as he knew that such a wicked act was sinning against God (Genesis 39:9,10)

3. Sin is destructive: Proverbs 5: 22 says “The evil deeds of a wicked man ensnare him; the cords of his sin hold him fast”. Romans 6:23 says “The wages of sin is death”. Sin entangles you, holds you tight, and suffocates you to death.
