Just say no ... to sin

Do you believe Christ conquered sin? Scripture clearly proclaims that He did. Praise God! However, do we live our lives justifying why we still have ongoing sin present in our lives or do we aggressively put to death all sin because of the authority and power we posses as followers of Christ?

Is it possible to stop sinning? The answer again is yes and must be a convincing yes for all Christ followers. If Jesus commanded us to sin no more and has given us the victory including all we need to succeed at this command, then we have no excuse and no other option than to aggressively kill sin by God’s amazing grace. We can do ALL things through Christ who gives us strength.

This is wonderfully good news! So, let’s take hold of the victory that is ours in Christ Jesus and no longer give sin a home in our lives. Just say no to sin.
No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God's seed remains in him; he cannot go on sinning, because he has been born of God. - 1 John 3:9
