Remedy for Sin  

Micah 7:7-9
“I will bear the indignation of the Lord, because I have sinned against him, until he plead my cause, and execute judgment for me: he will bring me forth to the light, and I shall behold his righteousness,” Micah 7:9.

I once heard a deacon tell a congregation, “We’re just human. We can’t help but sin.” Jesus taught His disciples, “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”  (Matt.5:48). God did not give us a license to sin because we are saved. Our security is in Christ, but some nominal Christians find security a loophole to continue in sin. Paul presented a formula in Romans 6 for stopping sin before it stops us. (1) Know that we died to sin with Christ on His cross. We do not have to sin if we do not want to. (2) Reckon that we have resurrected with Christ to serve God in a newness of life. (3) We must not yield our flesh to Satan as a weapon of war to use against us, but yield our bodies to God as an instrument of righteousness to bless others as we glorify His Son. We must let our lights shine so that others will see the Father in our works. That is supernatural.
Yes, we will fail, but when we do, it is not God’s fault. He has given us all the tools we need to live above sin, and that is not charismatic; that is Scripture. We have no scriptural excuse for sinning after salvation.
If sin was not pleasing to the flesh, Satan would not have any customers. Focus on the wretched consequences of sin.
