A child of God does not
sin. He is a holy person and he lives in the household of God, continuously in the
presence of God. Sin separates us from God. The moment we sin we move outside
of God’s presence.
Many Christians who were
once born again are spiritually dead because they have turned away from God and
are living in sin. They are prodigal children. They are out of the Father’s
house, in the pig sty.
The prodigal son was
dead. When he came back his Father washed and clothed him, gave him a ring on
his finger and said: “For this my son was
dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.” Luke 15:24.
Other Christians are fornicating like Esau who sold his
birthright for a single meal. They have fallen from the grace of God. “Lest
there be any fornicator, or profane person, as Esau, who for one morsel of meat
sold his birthright. For ye know how that afterward, when he would have
inherited the blessing, he was rejected: for he found no place of repentance,
though he sought it carefully with tears.” Hebrews 12:16,17. ONE SIN CAN
TAKE YOU TO HELL.
Christians who sin are either backslidden or fornicating. Nobody
who lives in the household of God sins because God does not tolerate sin.
Now is the day of salvation, now is the time to repent of sin
and go back to the Father’s house. Repentance means to totally turn away from
sin and become totally obedient to Christ and be righteous as He is righteous.
No unholy person or sinner will go into the kingdom of heaven. With
God there is only one way: utter holiness, sanctification without which nobody shall
