The Lord showed me today, how much important it is that we have to overcome sin in our lives. I read Romans 6 with new eyes. This is not an easy walk and we are not just to keep hope that God will forgive us again and again while we commit the same sin endlessly.
We all are struggling with sin but this is something that we have to take really seriously, we have to do all we can to overcome sin, and it is not just 10 commandments. There are many more in the book of proverbs, psalms and other verses.
We have to be serious about hating all kinds of sin and wickedness in us, including our thoughts and desires of our hearts. All the work done in us by the Holy Spirit is focused on showing us our sins and cleansing us to make us holy, to make us like the Lord Jesus. We have to walk in holiness and fear of God, who will not accept sin, there is no other way. We have to overcame our sinful flesh and nature with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Without holiness no one will see God.
I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness.
For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness.
What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death.
But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
