June 2, 2016 VICTORY OVER SIN
We all sin. If we say we don't, we aren't being very honest with ourselves. Sin is all over the world. There is murder, theft, cheating...the list goes on and on. Sin began with Adam and Eve giving into temptation and it isn't over yet. Temptation comes from Satan but it is possible to resist him and win when we keep our focus on the cross. For our victory over sin, Jesus has done the work. He has suffered and died so we are set free! We have victory over sin and death when we choose to follow Jesus.
1 Corinthians 15:57 "But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ." (NLT)
Dear Lord, we are so very grateful for Jesus who died for us and gave us victory over sin and death. We know He had to live a hard life on earth and give up His earthly life so we may live. Help us to remember this daily so we can show gratitude for victory, so we can share the news with others and so we can continue to live as You have called us to live. In Jesus' name. Amen.
All have sinned but with God's grace we can be forgiven and have victory over sin and death.
God's grace is just what we need at just the right time.
God forgives us for our sin when we repent and turn to Him.
We have victory over sin when we choose to follow Jesus.
Jesus died for us and gave us victory over sin and death.
Isaiah 25:8a "He will swallow up death forever!" (NLT)
Focus: It is possible to resist sin when we keep our focus on Jesus.
