Sin and Not Sin…
Sin and the separation from God is always close by. We are one breath away from stepping closer or stepping away. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was a gift to the human race to deliver us from evil, the evil that lives in our hearts, that manifest in our minds and zaps our strength. It is when we love our God with all our heart, all our spirit and all our mind that we are alive in Him and He is alive in us.
Whoever commits sin also commits lawlessness, and sin is lawlessness. And you know that He was manifested to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin. Whoever abides in Him does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him. ~1 John 2:4-6 NKJB
Our lives were made, by God, for living in His fullness. When we live for Him and we are nothing more than a reflection of Him, life is sweeter than any words can describe. Why would anyone turn away from such a life?
I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good. For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man. But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. 24O wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
So then, with the mind I myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the law of sin. ~Romans 8:21-25 NKJB
Sounds like everyone. Sounds like we all have these thoughts, feelings and actions that keep us from Jesus Christ and it is only His strength that can pull us out of the fire and place our feet on solid rock. Thank God Almighty for His loving Son, Jesus Christ.
Either the Gospel is divine inspiration, the Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of Him, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
