Sin

TODAY’S VERSE

“Though we are overwhelmed by our sins, you forgive them all.”
Psalms 65:3 (NLT)

“But where sin increased, grace increased all the more.”
Romans 5:20 (NIV)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
It is easy to think that the Psalmist was being presumptuous. How can we know that God will forgive our sins? Paul knows. He writes “Where sin increased, grace increased all the more.” However, the very next words he writes are, “What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means!” Paul was saying that God’s grace in forgiving us is not a “get out of jail free” card so we can sin anytime we want. On the contrary, Paul explains that grace has set us so free in Christ that we are no longer slaves to sin. In “True Faced” the authors write, “The environment of grace provides me with truth, acceptance, healing, safety, perspective, freedom, and the power that I did not before know; these realities are foundational to resolving my sin issues.” They go one step further in writing that God desires not only to forgive but to work on our sin with us. They write, “What if we took responsibility for the fact that we are the ones who sinned, and then with God at our side turn to trust His provision for the very sin that we’ve just committed?” God’s grace does just that. He forgives us and then helps us live for Him. Today, don’t run and hide from God. Talk to Him about sin issues in your life. Though you are overwhelmed, He will forgive. He will help you. His grace is greater than your sin.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Father, thank You for the death and resurrection of Your son Jesus Christ. Thank You for Your forgiveness, mercy and grace. Guide me, direct me, work with me, by Your grace to help resolve the sin issues in my life.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
