A lot of Christians still struggle with sin and its effect, many try to please God, but He cannot be pleased with activities. The era of works and self righteousness has ended. The believer does not and should not struggle with sin any longer; the victory began when the believer was resurrected with Christ.
The issue of sin has been dealt with; the requirements of the law have been fulfilled and abolished. In Romans 6: 14 … Sin shall not have dominion over you and it now lacks the power to lord itself over you again. Your sins were not erased, if erased; you can still see the marks or traces. But they were washed. Then a brand new you evolved.
God sees us and reckons in Christ Jesus; when we miss the mark, He does not only forgive, He forgets them also for Jesus’ sake when we confess. We have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous … 1 John 2: 1. He solicits for us before the Father; He is our standby, intercessor, strengthener, helper and advocate.
Never allow a second to pass you by any moment you err unconsciously or otherwise. Always allow the Holy Spirit to rule your conscience and set you right back on track. Sin does not separate the New Testament believer from God, what separates us from God is unbelief. It’s so simple, but true.
Romans 14: 23 … for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. God is displeased by a display of lack of faith. Unbelief or lack of faith in God’s Word brings sin consciousness. Since salvation came by faith, it shall also be perfected by faith.
Never magnify or allow guilt or the sin of the past keep you below the supremacy of the works Jesus did on you. The devil’s influence increases whenever you place the price Jesus paid to purchase your liberty below your mistakes.
Honour God today by showing how much you appreciate and recognize the victory you have in Christ above any weakness or fault there is. The highest glory lies not in what I can do or give to please the Lord, but in His acceptance of me – that God is even willing to accept me is amazing grace. Take a hold of this truth and bless your day.
