Deceiving Ourselves

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.

— 1 John 1:8-10 NKJV

———————————————-

All have sinned and come short of the goodness and Glory of God.  We cannot say that we have no sin.  As long as we listen to fleshly thoughts and try to accomplish life in the flesh, we WILL, sin.  We should have this under control by now.  Some of us tend to live life stuck in a rut.  It seems that our flesh wants to do what it wants and forget that we are cleansed and forgiven.  We have this mentality that once a sinner always a sinner.  We must get our selves out of that mindset.  Because that thought process is what makes us stay in flesh and not walk according to the Words command.  We are sin fre because we KEEP our minds on Heavenly things.  We are sin free when we stop immediately once the thought crosses our minds.  Resist the devil and the Word says he will flee you.  For those of you who donot know what sin is.  It is anything that goes agaisnt the command of Gods Word.  It is the wedge between life and death, that Christ has come and removed once and for all.

You are redeemed.  Stop decieving yourself.  Only in flesh are we sinners.  But, we are not to live by flesh mentalities.  We are instructed to turn on our light and live Godly.  I kniw we are in the flesh on earth, but we are first Spirit beings because of the Salvation of Christ.  Christ came to show us how to live it out.  Because, He sat with various people that others might question, does not mean He condoned what they did.  Because we sometimes sit people whom others might say are sinners or even think that we should not be in that comoany, does not mean we condone their actions.  I sometimes see my loved once do partocular things and I would wish they would not, but I can only be an example to them of righteous living.  Last point.  Stop letting others keep you in ther category.  You know those who want you to be just as bad off as they are. Those who say that your no better.  You are better than you were. Bcause the Lord akes you better.
