SIN IS NO LONGER A FACTOR

SIN IS NO LONGER A FACTOR
For sin shall not have dominion over you: 
for ye are not under the law, but under 
grace (Romans 6:14).

Some Christians make statements like, “As long 
as you’re in this body, you’re prone to sin,” 
but that’s not what the Word teaches. To believe and 
talk that way is to derogate the salvation Jesus brought 
to us, and denigrate its power. 1 John 2:1 says,  “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.” 
The underlined portion of the preceding verse 
lets us know that it’s not compulsory to sin. Part of it 
says, “…if any man sin,” not “…when any man sin.” Sin 
is no longer a factor. The Bible says,  “…whosoever is 
born of God sinneth not…” (1 John 5:18). It is possible 
not to sin, otherwise, the Apostle John wouldn’t have 
said so. 
You need to understand how God sees you, 
following the redemptive and substitutionary work 
of Christ. Colossians 1:21-22 makes it clear. It says, 
“And you, that were sometime alienated and 
enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now 
hath he reconciled In the body of his flesh through 
death, to present you holy and unblameable and 
unreproveable in his sight.”  He’s made you holy, 
blameless, and unreprovable. You didn’t attain this by 
your actions, but in Christ Jesus. 
No wonder He says in 1 Peter 2:9 (AMPC), “But 
you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated 
nation, [God’s] own purchased, special people, that 
you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display 
the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you 
out of darkness into His marvelous light.” He called 
you out of darkness, to set forth His wonderful deeds, 
and display His virtues and perfections. He didn’t just 
say you should walk in perfection, but to display and 
manifest His glory and virtue. He’s called you to walk 
in divine excellence, and manifest the fruits and works 
of righteousness. That’s the life of a Christian. Glory 
to God!
PRAYER
Dear Father, you’re the one at work in me, both to 
will and to do of your good pleasure. I’m born of you; 
therefore, sin has no dominion over me. I produce 
works and fruits of righteousness, displaying your 
perfection and excellence in all I do, in Jesus’ Name. 
Amen.
