AFTER JESUS WE ARE NO LONGER SUPPOSE TO BE SLAVES TO SIN
Romans 6:6: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye, not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? (reprobate: having or showing no moral principles, corrupt, hardened, perverted, sinful, lewd, rude)
• We cannot change all by ourselves
• Only Jesus can make the change from inside out
• Only Jesus can change our friends and family
o We can’t fix them – Only Jesus can
We have to rely on the Lord and His righteousness
Philippians 3:8-9: Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ,9 And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:
• Don’t let guilt from the evil one hold you back
• If you feel that you have failed God
• He is there to pick you up again
• BIG SIN may have bound you
• Jesus Blood paid the price for it all
SIN WILL MAKE YOU FEEL SEPARATED FROM GOD
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
THE BIBLE SAYS DYING IN SIN IS ETERNAL SEPARATION FROM GOD
Rev 20:15: And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
• Don’t sin because you have forgiveness
• Quickly get your sin under the Blood of Jesus
• Repent and turn from your sin
• Don’t let sin a mountain of sin build up
1 John 2:1-6 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:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.3 And hereby we do know that we know him if we keep his commandments.4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth, not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.5 But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
BECAUSE OF BEING BORN IN SIN, WE NEED TO BE BORN AGAIN
John 3:3: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
• We are spiritually dead before Jesus
• And cannot receive the New Life
• We ask Jesus for this new life
Romans 10:9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
Give your heart to Jesus today by saying this prayer:
Dear Lord Jesus,
Thank you for dying on the cross for my sin. Please forgive me. Come into my life. I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Please, help me to live for you the rest of this life. Fill me with your Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus, I pray.
