Sin is Death. Is There a Solution?

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23 (KJV)

Everyone sins daily. Not even the writers of the Bible are exempt. Let’s take Saul for example.

At first Saul was not a believer and he did ungodly things. He killed people that followed Jesus. Then Jesus spoke to him in a blinding light and asked why he was persecuting him. Saul said, “Who are you.” Jesus said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting.” At that point Saul knew Jesus was real. Saul became blind for several days. Then God sent three men to minister to him. He accepted Jesus as his Savior and God changed his name to Paul. God is just and fair and because he heard Paul’s prayer he forgave his sin and granted him eternal life.

Romans 6:23 says “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” If you have sinned or you continue to sin, you need to ask for forgiveness. Once you ask for forgiveness, God is merciful and will forgive.

God is merciful to forgive all of the sins that people commit and repent of each day. Those who refuse to repent are condemned, but he forgives those that ask for it. We are not to refuse to forgive either, because that’s sinning too. It may be hard, but we need to let go of things and let God handle them.

If you find it’s hard to stop sinning, you need to ask God to help you and guide you through this difficult time, then listen to him and do what he tells you to do. God will not ask you to do anything that is bad or evil. He won’t ask you to do anything that is against the law. If you have those feelings, the devil is trying to confuse you. You need to resist him and he will flee from you, according to God’s word.

Here is a prayer you can say to help you get through this difficult time.

Dear Lord, I praise and thank you for all you have done and will do in my life. I have sinned and I know that’s wrong. I ask for forgiveness of all my sins. Thank you for helping and guiding me through this difficult time and showing me what is right and was is wrong. I thank you for the strength to stand strong when evil tries to get in, in Jesus name. Amen
