NATURE OF SIN
For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Romans 3:23 NIV
There is a nature of sin inside each one of us. There is something that forces you to do wrong things even if you know that they are wrong. There is something that makes you to hate your brother even if you know that is against the word of God and good moral standards of the society.
You may be struggling to overcome certain sins in your life and you are asking yourself why you keep repeating them over and over again. You may think that you may overcome them by your own strength and get discouraged when you fail.
We are living in a period that not all preachers in the church of Jesus Christ talk about sin. Many so called ministers of the Gospel concentrate on encouraging people to plant seed that they may be blessed. There are every kind of doctrines and revelations on how we can get riches through planting of seeds. While we go deep into blessings we tend to forget the real problem that we all facing, the problem of sin.
This morning, ask the Lord Jesus to give you special strength to overcome sins in your life. I know you have plans for this year and wonderful goals that you want to reach before the end of the year. I want to add one goal for you, pray that God may help you to live a holy life in Christ Jesus. Building or buying a house, new car, getting married and getting a promotion may be so important to you; but don't forget that you need to prepare yourself for afterlife.
Don't live in this world like you will stay in it forever. No one knows the day or the hour that our Lord will come to take us back home to Him. Prepare yourself daily by making sure you are living a sinless life. Remember to repent quickly after you commit any kind of sin in your life. The Spirit of God will remind you to repent whenever you do something that is against the will of God. Learn to obey Him that you may be counted worth to inherit the kingdom of God.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, forgive me for I have sinned against You. Lord I'm asking that You may give me strength to overcome sins in my life. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
