Why we can’t stay in our sin

If you look at what it means to be saved it should give you the answer your looking for. Salvation comes from repentance and repentance means to have a contrite heart because of your sin. Which means if you come to Jesus admit your sin, ask for forgiveness He is faithful to forgive. But repentance also means to turn away form that sin. That is why a person isn’t covered by His blood if they remain in their sin. If you think you have repented and just keep doing the same things over and over again then maybe you need to examine if it was sincere. Sadly there are false conversions, but you will know by your life style.

That doesn’t mean that people won’t make mistakes and ‘slip’. Remember God is always willing to forgive us. But we must be willing to commit and do our absolute best to be faithful to Him. Sin is anything that separates us from God.

The world would like the church to remain silent but remember that God is the same yesterday, today and forever. People are found of saying that God hates the sin but loves the sinner. But remember He also said Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated. The Lord tells us to take up our cross and follow Him. It isn’t an easy thing to deny ourselves but that is exactly what we must do sometimes. God bless, Dan Beliveau
