How Are Our Sins Taken Away?

What can you do to have your sins taken away?

Believe, that God has offered you the gift of forgiveness.

Jesus took all of our sins into His body when He died on the cross. He took them away from us and put them in hell. He took the sins of all people from Adam and Eve to the end of time.

We do continue to sins daily, sometimes minute by minute. It is human nature to sin. Even a newborn baby is sinful. Why? Babies sin because they are completely self-centered. All they care about is their needs. They want food, to be dry, and for us to pay attention to their every whim.

It’s natural for us to want others to care for and about us. We have to make the choice to push sin aside. We have to pray asking God:

  • To forgive our sin
  • Help us to not be self-centered
  • To reach out to help others
  • To help us to share God’s love with everyone around us

It is our responsibility to learn all we can by reading the Bible, and to have fellowship with other believers. If we study the Word with others we can help each other understand how to stay away from sin. As we learn we are guided by God to share His message and bring more people to know and love Him. It is His desire to have everyone join Him in heaven.

God is a loving Father that deeply cares for us. He proved it by taking our sins away. He bore the pain.  His wounds are what healed us.

What can you do to help you children learn about being freed from sin?

  • Tell them that God loves them even more than you
  • Read the Bible to them
  • Tell them how Jesus took their sins away
  • When they do something wrong explain how it is a sin

How can you share with others that our sins are taken away?

He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed. [1]

Nothing Can Separate Us From God!

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.[1] Rom. 8:38–39

 

And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love.

This is hard to imagine. We are sinful by nature. Even when we don’t mean to do things wrong we do. Our thoughts get us in trouble frequently.

 

                                                                             Neither death nor life,

Whether we are try to live the best life we can, or have died. Neither can separate us from the love of God.

 

Neither angels nor demons,

There are angels around us to help us, sometimes we don’t understand what they are trying to do for us. There are also demons that try to get us to get us to turn from God and His plans for us. Both could separate us from God, but He will not turn from us.

 

Neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow,

Separation can come from fear and worry. Being afraid or worrying will not help in the least bit. It only succeeds in causing us problems. Turn your fear and worry over to God.

 

—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love.

If you turn your life over to God, and accept His love you will not be separated from Him.

 

No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

This gift of love and no worry of separation from God is so amazing. Our minds find this hard to believe. We daily think and do things wrong, it’s just our human nature. We can’t help it. That’s why we have received the gift of the Holy Spirit to intercede for us and close the gap of separation. The Holy Spirit takes our words and actions and filter them before they reach God, because we cannot go before Him in our sinful nature.

What makes you be afraid or worry? Have you felt pulled by demons? Share at the bottom of the blog your thoughts.
