2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.Romans 6:4
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.1 John 1:9
If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.Acts 10:43
To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.Acts 13:37-39
But he, whom God raised again, saw no corruption.Ephesians 2:4-9
Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:
And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,Now that we have been made new, adopted into the Body of Christ, a child of God. We must start reading the Word of God, We should read the Bible daily. Without it, we do not know or understand how to live for God, the Bible is the living Word of God and provides instruction, reproof, and righteousness.
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Not of works, lest any man should boast.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:We need the Word of God so that we may be equipped to stand righteous in the world, it provides our weapon against evil, and allows us to know and discern spiritual matters. The Bible is our manual for success and prosperity from the world in the Kingdom of God.
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.Joshua 1:8
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.We have the Holy Spirit to comfort and teach us through the Word of God how to walk in newness of life.
John 14:16-17 and 26
And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;1 John 2:27
Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.Christians, this means that we have all the tools needed to live and sanctify ourselves to a sinless and perfect life in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! All we have to do is submit to God's will and put our trust and faith in God. We must do as God commands and live in obedience, as children of God we have his mercy and grace, Christ the Redeemer, his Holy Word, and the Holy Ghost as our teacher and comforter.
Living for God, immersing ourselves in his Word provides freedom, and release from being the servant of sin.
But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.John 8:31-36
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:
For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;God wants us to be free from sin and provides all the tools needed, and commands us to be sinless.
And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.1 peter 1:14-16
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:1 Corinthians 10:13
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.James 1:12-17
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.How marvelous and wonderful God is. His mercy and grace, providing for us in every way. Protecting us, nurturing us, and preparing our way. I urge you to read God's Word. Sanctify yourself to God's will. Your joy will be overflowing.
Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
Do not err, my beloved brethren.
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
