The Cure for Sin - Tuesday, March 28th 2017

2 Corinthians 5:21

"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."
NKJV

Sin... little word, big problem. Think of all the problems in your own life caused by your sin. Think of all the problems in the world caused by the sin of others - wars, violence, stealing, laziness, and envy. On and on and on the list goes and grows. There is a saying, "Sin is the seed, and death is the harvest." The Bible has a lot to say about sin. It tells us that sin is not only the bad things we do, but also the good things we don't do. When we fail to love, give or help, we are engaging in sin. As long as we never do wrong and always do right, we don't and won't have a problem with sin. Thanks... that helped a lot. :-) The Bible tells us how to deal with past sins and how to deal with sin in the present and future. It is easier than you think. "Past sins," you may ask? Ask for forgiveness.

1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." NKJV

What about our present sins? Hebrews 12:1b-2a says that we should strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up and that we should run with endurance the race God has set before us.

We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Friend don't tell God you have a big sin problem, tell the sin problem that you have a big God. Think about life, think about Jesus, and keep your eyes on Him.

Life Lesson: God has the only cure for sin.

Dear God,
Thank You for taking my sin upon You. I am sorry for the wrong things I have done and for the right I have failed to do. I confess my sins to You and ask for forgiveness. (Confess your sins, by act and by name to Him). Lord, thank You for helping me with my past and present sins. Help me to keep my eyes not on my sin, but on my Savior, Jesus. Help me to soar by casting off the weights of sin. Help me to live the life You have called me to live. In Jesus' name, Amen.

Living to tell what He died to say,
