Grace and Sin

Hebrews 8:12 NIV
For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.

Our sin is forgiven forever. Grace covers us when we sin. And yet our lives are to be holy as He is holy. How can that be if we continue to sin? You see, Jesus went to the cross so our sins would be forever forgiven. He did not go to remove all sin. Sin is still here and it is our choice to walk in sin or in righteousness daily.

As we walk with Christ we build our relationship with Him. There is no sin in Him and when we continue to walk in sin we do not get as close as we could to Him.

He is looking for a pure clean bride. As we sin we remain dirty. He still loves us. He still covers us with His blood. He still protects us. We still walk in His grace. Yet we know we want to be closer to Him. To do that we cannot continue to walk in known sin. To walk as a carnal Christian instead of who we are in Christ, instead of walking in the spirit, in our renewed mind.

What we look at on our computers may be hidden from the world but He knows. It is sin. What we do behind closed doors may not be visible to others. But He knows because He is in us. He forgives our sin and yet He knows our sin.

Lord help me to be a pure bride. Help me to not remain in the sinful positions I have allowed in my life. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
