Romans 6:1,2 So do you think we should continue sinning so that God will give us more and more grace? Of course not! Our old sinful life ended. It’s dead. So how can we continue living in sin?

Knowing that Jesus died and rose again to set us free from our sin … that’s one thing. But living out that truth, putting an end to that one sin that keeps tripping you up… that’s quite another.

And that’s the problem, isn’t it? We know that Jesus died on that cross to pay the price for our sin and set us free from its power. But the problem is that sin – especially that one sin which continually plagues us – seems to linger on.

Romans 6:1,2 So do you think we should continue sinning so that God will give us more and more grace? Of course not! Our old sinful life ended. It’s dead. So how can we continue living in sin?

Yep, a rhetorical question, but the answer is … pretty darned easily. We just seem to slip back into it again and again.

Let’s focus on that “one sin” in your life for the moment. What is it? For me, the sin I’ve had to deal with is anger. What’s yours? And when you think about it, there’s always a trigger – something that sets it off. It’s time to identify your trigger. What is it? And what plan can you put in place for when next it happens … to make a good choice, rather than your usual bad one?

You have an amazing brain that’s capable of rewiring itself. It’s a phenomenon called neuroplasticity. You have entrenched neural pathways which you travel down when set off by that trigger. But when you enact your new plan time after time, trigger after trigger, it creates new pathways of behaviour.

God has a plan. Indeed, He’s made a way in Jesus to set you free from sin. It’s time for you to make your plan to get with His plan.

That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.

Thank you for sharing these hard trials. I would love to encourage you by simply saying I’ll be praying for you. If you want even more prayer it would be awesome to send this to our prayer warriors over on https://powerfulprayer.org/

Yes, the bible talks about killing the sin in your life with that analogy. However, it never says to take it to that level. The rest of the bible talks about how your body is precious to God. Your life is precious to your heavenly Father. So much so that despite your sin He wants to spend eternity with you. And God’s word teaches us how to use our life to His Glory as a response to Jesus’ death and resurrection. So we are to fight our sin here on earth knowing that in eternity we will be perfect and sinless. So we still sin? Yes. In heaven, we’ll be perfect? Yes. But we want others to join us. our loved ones, the people we don’t like, our neighbours. So we fight our sin here and show our neighbours that heaven is our aim and that we want them to join us there worshipping God for eternity.

Hopefully that was helpful,
Will be praying,
Ethan.

How can I fight these terrible sins that beset me? I have two and it pains me to keep falling into these two sins of having a short temper and homosexuality. I sometimes lose hope, I attempted to kill myself by overdosing but I failed. I swore that I wouldn’t try to do that again, but I am again sinning against the Lord and having the same thoughts of killing myself. Tell me: doesn’t the Bible say that if your right eye causes you to stumble pluck it off and throw it away right? So if my body causes me to sin I should destroy it and die. You can’t say that I’m wrong because that passage in the Bible appears to assert that. I know of people who have committed suicide because of their homosexuality. I fear that I am headed that way please pray for me.

thank you. much appreciate these lessons. I too have trouble with Anger – and the accompanying need to forgive, to be angry with the deed rather than the person, have compassion for them but still take necessary steps to deal with that situation, remembering that I too do things wrong sometimes and Jesus forgives me. I have found that if i just squash the anger back as ‘not suitable for a Christian’, I end up being cold and dismissive of the people involved, and may even shut them and the situation out. Sometimes we have to look back into our own lives to see what undealt with or even unrecognised hurts may be lurking behind the fresh outbreak of anger. And that can also enable us to forgive ourselves. Typing this has actually brought fresh healing and understanding to me about my own issues.

This is the most amazing practical and scientific thing I ever heard in my life from Christian teachers and preachers.

Thank You , Christianity Works and Berni Dymet Sir.

2Corinthians 12:6 Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say,
2Co 12:7 or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me.
2Co 12:8 Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me.
2Co 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2Co 12:10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Galatians 2:21 I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!”
