IT IS POSSIBLE TO BE FREE FROM SIN
Do you know that it is very possible to be a saint and be free from sin? A lot of us usually excuse ourselves that "we are all sinners, may God simply forgive us!" We have not really stopped to think about the serious words of the Lord Jesus Christ when he said: "Whosoever commiteth sin is the servant of sin and the servant abideth not in the house for ever. But the son abideth for ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." (Jn.8:34).
In another place it is written: "He that commiteth sin is of the devil. For this purpose was the son of God manifested that he might destroy the works of the devil." (1Jn.3:8). The word of God is forever settled in heaven, including the word that says "the soul that sinneth shall die!" The only way God can save us from death and perdition therefore, is to stop sin in our life. If it is not possible he would not have commanded that "be ye therefore perfect even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect." (Mat.5:48). But because by our own strength and our efforts to be good we can never make it, Jesus came to give us power, as it is written: "for as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God; even to them that believe on his name." (Jn.1:12). The Lord Jesus described this power as "being born again of the Spirit of God", (Jn.3:5-8), and it is evident that only through Jesus Christ can you receive the power because John the baptist said of Jesus: "I indeed baptize you with water," but Jesus "will baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire".(Mat.3:11). And "there is none other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts. 4:12).
Jesus will freely give you this power also to become a son of God if you will sincerely pray and ask him for it, believing that he died for you on the cross to make His blood available for your redemption.
Will you love to be free from sin and accept Jesus as Lord and Saviour? Then say this prayer: "Dear Lord Jesus, I believe this truth that you can set me free from sin. I ask you to come into my heart now. I repent from my sins. Cleanse me Lord, and make me a child of God today. Thank you Jesus. Amen!"
Read the bible daily and write us for more literature. May God bless your heart.
