Dear Tom2,

The following Scriptures will help you:

1 John 1:8 - 2:2, "If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we CONFESS OUR SINS, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. My little children, these things write I unto you, THAY YE SIN NOT. And IF ANY MAN SIN, WE HAVE AN ADVOCATE with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world."

Moses

Dear Tom2,

The problem you mentioned is a very common one. Every one of us has this prolem, some more, some less. Remember that we are in flesh. And the flesh causes us to sin. But by saying this, I am not saying that we have licence to sin. The Lord told us to be holy. We by our own selves have not the ability to abstain from sinning. But God created a new spirit in us (that which is born of the Spirit is spirit, John 3), and that which is born of God CANNOT sin (1 John 3). So we have a new nature which cannot sin, and the old nature that always makes us to sin. Please read Romans chapter 8. You have all answers there. We should mortify (that is, kill) the deeds of the flesh by the Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that helps us. So dependence on the Lord is most important. A nazirite cannot eat grapes and anything related to vine. But Samson went near to the vineyards (he had no business going there), and he encountered the lion (figuratively the devil, who goes about seeking whom to devour). We meed to flee the situations, places that might cause us to sin. Paul told Timothy, "flee youthful lusts."

I hope this helps. May the Lord be with you and help you brother.

Sincerely in Christ,

Moses LemuelRaj

Hello friend,

Roman 6:14 Says that Sin shall not have mastery over you because you are under grace.Also Jesus said If our earthly father knows how to give good gifts to his children how much more our heavenly father knows.Since we have this promises let us ask god to lead a victorious life.Let us continuasly ask till we receive the grace so that sin shall NOT take the control.
God bless you.

Dear Tom2.

I trust that the way you feel after sin makes you feel unworthy to be in His presense? I have been through this before myself.

Everytime I sinned I used to feel dirty and unworthy to come before the Lord. I used to try to "Hide". How silly was I to try to hide from the Almighty King and Creator of all, who knows each of our hearts.

I spent alot of time waiting on the Lord, I rested in his presense and began to list my sins over and over again and constantly asked the Lord for forgiveness. I kept going back to the same place of sin. This however changed when the Lord spoke to my heart and told me this:

"I died on the cross to take away your sins." The Holy spirit convicted my heart and told me
"I will always forgive you no matter what you have done. When you received me into your life, You received eternal life. My Death was so that you may be forgiven."

I still sin. The difference is now that I return to the Lord without trying to hide. I immediately call out my repentance to the Lord for forgiveness. And immediately it is granted. I know this through faith and trust in His unfailing promises.

If we do not repent of the sin, that stain on our hearts will begin to corrode and allow the enemy a foothold into our conscience, from this he can prod us with comments like "You can't be a christian if you've done x or y". This is the way that the enemy underminds our salvation in Christ.

I have also found that by Keeping my eyes firmly lifted up to the lord [Song of Solomon 1 v 15: "Lover: How beautiful you are, my darling! Oh, how beautiful! Your eyes are doves." - Doves eyes can only look forward. They are focused in the direction they are looking.]
I find peace in my focus as whilst I am focused on the Lord I have no place in my mind for earthly things. This in turn leads to a more intimate relationship with the Lord. The more time we spend in His presence the more focused we will become. The more we will see into the heavenly realms and realise what God's will is for us.

I believe that whilst we live in this world we are not of this world. We are human and as humans we are not imune from temptations. We will be tempted and we will fall short of the mark. (we will sin). God knows that we are going to sin and therefore in order to provide our salvation he sent his only Son to Die a horrid brutal death on the cross. This is the greatest gift we could ever have received.

Whilst the guilt of sin can really be difficult to handle we must rest in the knowledge that when we repent to the Lord he forgives us our sins everytime. To the Lord no sin is greater than another. All sin is bad and causes us to begin to become stained. This is why the Lord Jesus had to die on the cross. So that these constant sins could be forgiven when we repent.

Jesus tells us that When we pray to the Lord and earnestly seek him we will find what we are looking for. Our prayers will be answered. Therefore dear Brothers when we sin, we are convicted by the Holy Spirit, we turn to the Lord and earnestly seek his forgiveness, we are then forgiven and we can start afresh each day with a clean slate.
He is our Father and wants us to come to him with ALL our troubles. Not just some of them. ALL of them what ever they are. When we set all our troubles, sins, grief, joy, our lives before his feet and rest in His presense he becomes the proudest of Fathers. He want us to share our lives with Him. The more we share and lay at his feet the more he can do in our lives. We must submit to him in every aspect of our lives. The more we submit the less room there is for the enemy to penetrate our hearts and minds with seeds for Doubt.
I hope my ramblings make some sense.

I now Pray that we all experience the Lord in a real, open and honest relationship. That he pours out his blessings on us and opens our spiritual eyes to see what He is doing in Heaven that we may do the same here on earth.

Let us call down an open heaven to allow His glory to spread through the world.

His Jesus Mighty Name
David.

Thanks Tom2.

I believe that if we (as brothers) can all share our experiences, troubles, failing and triumphs we can all learn from each other and get a new perspective on life. Sometimes we need to distance ourselves from the "ritual" and "doctrine" of our own chruch experiences and see what the Lord is doing in other places and church communities.

I get great encouragements from this site as I have only visited this a couple of times.

May God bless each and every believer in whatever part of the world they are in. May testamonies be shared around the world to further the Kingdom of the Lord.

God Bless.
David
