We are no longer slaves to sin. For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin. And since we died with Christ, we know we will also live with him. We are sure of this because Christ was raised from the dead, and he will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. When he died, he died once to break the power of sin.
– Romans 6:6-10
The strength of sin is in what it does to you after a sinful act. Sin is intended to destroy you by threatening to separate you from God the father.
I have been and I know many people who are ashamed to turn to God after they have done something wrong.
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8)
The bible says, it is by grace we have been saved and not because of who we are and what we have done. So if what we have done did not save us, what we do now cannot separate us. Do not believe the lie that we need to live clean first and then only we can approach God. The truth is you can live free from sin only by the grace of God and by being in constant communion with Him.
Like most people who teach of grace necessarily repeat, “Grace is no license to sin”, but grace is required to live a life that is free from the power of sin.
“For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[a] neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 8:38-39)
Do not allow anything to separate you from God. Run to God when you fall and be quick to repent. Nothing you do can separate you from the love of God. Embrace the grace of God to break the power of sin.
“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrews 4:16)
