Today’s Topic: How to Deal With Sin
If you have taken the wrong road in life, honesty with God is the way back.

Scripture: 1 John 1:5-10; 1 John 2:1-2

Christ’s sacrifice on the cross paid for all our sins, but believers are still susceptible to temptation and disobedience. So it’s important for us to understand what to do when we yield to our sinful desires. God has graciously given us a way to receive cleansing so we can continue to grow in holiness. We’re to …

  • See sin as the Lord sees it. Our God is absolutely pure. To Him, every sin is an offense that violates His law, grieves the Holy Spirit, and belittles Christ’s sacrifice.
  • Take responsibility for it. Trying to soften the heinous nature of sin by calling it a mistake, weakness, or shortcoming is unacceptable. We must acknowledge our disobedience instead of making excuses or blaming others.
  • Confess it. Agreeing with God about our wrongdoing is a blessed privilege. Once we confess, He washes us clean of the guilt and empowers us to turn away from that sin in repentance. In this way, we can begin walking afresh in holiness.

Although John explained how to deal with sin, his main purpose was to encourage us to turn from it and walk in obedience to God. Sin should be the exception in our life—not the rule.

Bible in One Year: Ezekiel 23-25
