Living Without Sin. Possible?

 

The short answer is : YES and Glory to God for it !

Rebuke anyone who tells you that it is impossible to live without sin. It is a deceitful information that will prevent you from pleasing God.

Throughout the Old and New Testament, we can find numerous verses where God wants his people to live Holy, which means without sin.

In the Old Testament:
Exodus 20:20; Psalm 125:3; Ezekiel 3:17-21; Ezekiel 18:4-32; Ezekiel 33:13-20

In the New Testament:
John 5:14; John 8:11; Romans 6:1-23; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11; 1 Corinthians 10:21;
1 Corinthians 15:34; 2 Corinthians 5:17-21; Galatians 2:17-21; Galatians 5:19-21; Ephesians 4:26-27; Hebrews 6:4-6; Hebrew 10:26-27; 1 John 1:5-10; 1 John 2:1;
1 John 3:3-10

God does not change. (Malachi 3:6)

This means that wether in the Old Covenant or in the New Covenant, the goal of God was always to make his people live a holy life by rejecting iniquity.

Our Lord Jesus-Christ walked on Earth with the same flesh that you and I have; nevertheless, he never sinned. (1 Peter 2:22)

Moreover,  we know that we have to walk on Earth like Jesus walked in order to be partakers of salvation. (1 John 2:6)
This shows us that in addition to being possible, living without sin is in fact a commandment of God. We have to be sinless to go to heaven. (Romans 6:23)

There are two places in the Bible where Jesus-Christ himself told people to stop living in sin. (John 5:14; John 8: 1-11)
Since Jesus-Christ told people twice to live a life without sin, it means it is possible to do so.

Jesus said that those who love him will follow his commandments. (John 14:21)
“Sin no more” is a clear directive that any child of God has to practice.

Many people will argue that the flesh is weak and that we will fall in sin, but by the grace of God through Jesus-Christ we will be saved.

Let’s see what Paul the apostle had to say about sin and grace in Romans 6.

14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid.

18 Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

Being made FREE from sin, we can now be called sons and daughters of the most high God. (John 1:12)

In 1 John 1, 1 John 2 and 1 John 3 we have profound teaching about sin.

In 1 John 1, the Word of God is talking to pagans. It says that if pagans say that they have no sin, they deceive themselves.

Finally, in 1 John 3:9, we can read:

9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.

I pray that you see the Truth that has been explained in this article.

In this blog, I will explain more and more concretely what it means to live a holy life as sons and daughters of the most high God.

Glory to God !
