So much sin

Vaclav's picture

My Christian friend, are you discouraged today because though you want so much to be more like Jesus in his character, but still see so much sin in you? Don't be. I find it in me so too.

And if you wonder, 'but what about other "godly" Christians, don't they struggle with sin less?'. No. None of us are sinless. And if we are honest, all of us would have to admit we struggle with sin in one way or another on a daily basis. But little by little as we trust Christ, we will sin less.

So be hopeful my friend, though now we still sin, one day when we see Jesus we will not be able to sin anymore. His promise is that there will be a New Heaven and a New Earth and in them "No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him." (Revelation 22:3)

The sin and the curse will be destroyed, and we will be new, and reign with Christ in joy, peace, and righteousness forever.

And as Richard Sibbes a Puritan pastor and theologian said: "There is more grace in Christ than there is sin in us."
