WITHOUT SIN

 
1 John 1:8


"If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us." NIV


"If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us." KJV


We were born into sin. When we accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior we were set free of the bondage of sin. But we still have the choice to sin or not. Our fleshly nature takes precedence at some time or another, and we sin. We cannot say we are without sin. We all give in to temptation, large or small. Jesus Christ remains faithful to forgive us when we repent.


Heavenly Father, we stand humbled before You knowing that we are not totally clean from the sin of this world. We do give You praise and honor and glory that You have made the way for us to be free from the grip of sin in our lives. Help us to resist temptation and overcome by Your mercy. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
