CAN YOU STOP SINNING IN YOUR OWN POWER?

The whole world is in the power of the evil one, because of sin. The reason for sin and corruption is lust. People sin when they follow their own sinful desires. People become addicted and demon possessed when they open the door to demons through sin, watching TV, pornography, reading evil books, like Harry Potter, video games, and substance abuse. Then they become compelled and driven by evil forces that seek to destroy them. They lose control of themselves. They are slaves to sin and cannot escape. The wages of sin is death. The soul that sins will die. As long as you keep on sinning you are doomed and destined for hell and destruction. 

That is why Jesus came, to take away the sins of the world, to set the captives free, those who are bound by sin. We read in John 1:29, John the Baptist saw Jesus coming to him and said:”Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!”  

Only Jesus can set you free from the bondage of sin. We read in John 8:34 Jesus said: “Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the slave of sin. 35“The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. 36“So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed. If the Son of God, Jesus, sets you free. You will not be a slave to sin any more, you will be FREE from the bondage of sin. 

If you come to Jesus and ACCEPT Him, He will set you free and make you NEW inside, a child of God. We read in John 1:12 “But as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, 13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.” You MUST be BORN AGAIN. 

If you RECEIVE Jesus, EMBRACE Him, ACCEPT Him as you Lord and Master, COME TO Him, bow down before Him, SUBMIT yourself to Him; PRAY, cry out to Him to SAVE you, He will save you from your sin. He will set you free from the bondage of sin, but you need to stay with Jesus and OBEY Him, to stay free. 

Repent, turn away from sin and from your previous lifestyle of worldliness and going after the desires of the flesh. Follow after Jesus,  stop sinning, live holy. Be baptized in water for the forgiveness of your sins. Live according to the words of  Jesus as they were recorded in Matthew,  Mark,  Luke and John.  

If you turn away from Jesus and go back to sin, you will become MORE ENSLAVED than before you met Jesus, you will be worse off than before. That is why many Christians are wicked  sinners who are unable to stop sinning. No wonder that the writer of Hebrews wrote in Hebrews 6:4 “For in the case of those who have once been enlightened and have tasted of the heavenly gift and have been made partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6and then have fallen away, it is impossible to renew them again to repentance, since they again crucify to themselves the Son of God and put Him to open shame. 7For ground that drinks the rain which often falls on it and brings forth vegetation useful to those for whose sake it is also tilled, receives a blessing from God; 8but if it yields thorns and thistles, it is worthless and close to being cursed, and it ends up being burned.” 

It is however not the end of the line for those who have back-slided. There is hope if such a person truly repents, as we see in the parable of the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32. If you are a prodigal son or daughter, RUN back to the Father’s house before it might be forever too late. 

Sinners will NOT enter heaven, if they do not repent and stop sinning. Without holiness no one will see the Lord. As long as you keep sinning, you are DEAD in sin and DOOMED to damnation. 

You can only stay FREE FROM SIN as long as you stay with Jesus. Without Jesus we can do nothing.  If you sin and end up in hell, you only have yourself to blame, because you rejected Jesus and went away from Him.  

Run to Jesus. Ask Him to save you. Then obey and stay with Him. Be holy and SIN NO MORE. 

May Jesus bless you.
