The question of sin

Casalis's picture

Would someone please answer this question... Jesus came to free us from sin but sin still remains a struggle in the lives of His church. How exactly did He free us from sin as He said in John 10? Surely God can give abundant grace to His children so that they sin no more but its as if though He holds back that grace and allows the struggle though He hates sin.. Could someone find a consensus here?

Take Heed

Just wanted to agree with the comments already made thus far. Jesus struggled against sin and conquered every time, weather in thought or deed. All that hell could hurl against the Lord of Lords was soundly defeated. Remember how Jesus responded by saying "It is written". The "servant is not above his master", "we must through much tribulation enter the Kingdom of God". The Grace of God (his divine nature) is given to those that have truly repented with a "Godly sorrow" that leaves no regret. We must prove our love to Christ as any pure bride would that was betrothed to her husband to be. The narrow road is truly a difficult one that "few find" as Jesus revealed. The greatness of the Gospel is that the Saints have recieved the divine nature in order to escape the corruption that is in the world through lust, as Peter testifies. Jesus is able to assist those that are being tempted and that are "workers together with Him". The true Faith of the Gospel is the "faith that worketh by love", "and this is love, that we keep His commandments, and His commandments are not burdensome". To walk according to the Spirit takes the "whole armor of God" which he will supply to all that dilligently seek Him. The reward is unspeakable by human terms, but we know that we are "strangers and aliens in this world" since we look for the city that God has prepared for all those that love (faithfully obey) Him. The urgency to stay in the Scriptures and know what Jesus said is a matter of eternal consequence. We are in the days where "almost the very elect (those conformed to the image of Christ) will be deceived. The wolves and false Prophets dominate the platforms and mass media. The false professors confess Christ with their lips, but their hearts are far from Him, or in deeds they deny Him, "having a form of godliness (the power to overcome sin) but denying it's power. God himself had to die to atone for sin and reconcile us back to Himself. We have to die for him by losing our life for His sake. What an honor to be counted worthy to be a partaker of Christ suffering. Don't forget Romans 2:6-7 "Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, eternal life". Be sober and vigilant.
