Sin is not an issue anymore

Sin is not an issue anymore

Most Christians believe that sin is an issue to God for everybody. For God is the sin (unbelief in Christ), an issue for the unbeliever and not for the believer. Because of unbelief in Christ, a sinner stay condemned for it is written: He who believes in Him is not condemned but he who does not believe is condemned already because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

For God, the lack of knowledge of the believer towards his righteousness and towards his victory over the powers of sin and over the consequences of sin is an issue. In John 16:8-11, Jesus said to His disciples: And when He (the Holy Spirit) has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

Dead to sin

The believer is a new creation in Christ and God has given him the gift of righteousness due to the sacrifice of Christ Jesus. In 2 Corinthians 5:21 it is written: For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

And in Romans 6:10-12 it is written: For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Likewise, you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.

How to overcome the powers of sin

To overcome the powers of sin we have to believe that in Christ Jesus, we have received the gift of righteousness and the abundance of grace, to live and to reign in life, as it is written in Romans 5:17.

Furthermore, we have to know that the battle is the Lord’s not of us. The only thing that we have to do is to submit to God while we resist the powers of sin. In James 4:7-8 it is written: Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

And in Revelation 12:11 it is written: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. So be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might while you put on the whole armour of God to resist the powers of sin.


How to overcome the consequences of sin

To overcome the consequences of sin, all kinds of problems, we have to know what has been freely given to us, by God, in Christ Jesus. We know that Jesus has said: I have come that they may have life and that they may have it more abundantly.

And we also know that in Christ Jesus that God has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Those blessings we can consider them as blueprints for all that we need in life through grace, which is sufficient for us.

And in 2Corintians 8:9 it is written: For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.

So by thanking and praising God for the exchange of the consequences of sin against the consequences of righteousness, we give God the space to let us overcome the consequences of sin, which are our problems.
