Repeating Sin

Filed under: Bible,Christ,devotion,God,Jesus — by ginrich @ 1:00 am

1 John 3:9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God.

We aren’t putting sin to death if we keep sinning. If we don’t recognize sin we will keep repeating. We learn to recognize sin as sin through studying and meditating on the Bible. As we learn and grow in the Holy Spirit and recognize our sins of actions, words and thoughts and ask forgiveness we must be sure to turn our backs on those particular actions, words and thoughts and not keep repeating them. Continuing in them means there are areas in our lives where we do not allow God’s Holy Spirit to dwell. As we recognize the sin we must ask the Holy Spirit to fill us in that area and help us overcome that temptation. Our question is do we want God’s Holly Spirit in those areas or do we want to continue in the familiar area of our sins?
