 What should I do about sin?   

What did God do about sin?   

  • From the very beginning God required blood for sin.

Genesis 3:21 (God killed an animal to make coats of skins)

Genesis 4:3-5 (Cain’s offer rejected because of no blood)

Exodus 12:12-13 (Israel escaped death of 1st born by blood)

Leviticus 17:11 (Blood was atonement for the soul)

  • This left one problem, the blood of animals could not take away sins. (Hebrews 10:4)
  • Jesus Christ solved this problem (Hebrews 9:11-15)

What about Past sins?     

  • When we get saved our sins are forgiven and taken away by the blood of Jesus Christ.

(Ephesians 1:7 ; Colossians 1:14 ; 1 Peter 1:18-19 ; 1 John 1:7 ; Revelation 1:5)

  • As a result of this God doesn’t see or remember our sins former sins anymore.

(Isaiah 1:18 ; Isaiah 43:25 ; Psalm 103:12 ; Micah 7:19)

What about sin we commit after we are saved?      

  • Remember that we still have this flesh and it still desires to sin. (Romans 7:15-25)
  • Therefore when we sin we must judged it as sin and confess it to God and he will forgive us of this sin                               (1 John 1:7-2:2)      

What can we do to avoid sin after we are saved? (Romans 6:6-13)      

  • Know that the old man is crucified (vs. 6)
  • Reckon or count the old man to be dead (vs. 11)
  • Do not yield your body to sin (vs. 13)
