  • 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).
    tuesday 31
    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.
