How to Overcome Sin


As Christians you will encounter the same people, face the same challenges and can be tempted by the same things that were a problem before you changed your life but now you have the Bible to lead and guide you.

Paul writes in Romans 12:1 that we are called to present our lives holy and acceptable to God in an act of obedience. Sin in thought, word or deed is something every believer has to constantly be conscious of to avoid pitfalls.

Here are some practical scriptures to think on to assist in how you view your life and your Christian walk that will help you in your daily activities.

Be aware of Godís presence

God is omnipresent - Nothing you do is hidden from God. Keeping this always at the forefront of your mind will help you make adjustments in your actions.

Have a daily quiet time

Spend time every day to commune with God. The more time you spend reading the Bible, the stronger you are spiritually to fight sin. Make it a priority daily by choosing and setting aside the time that works best for you and stick to it.

Memorize and meditate on Godís Word

Growing beyond the casual reading of the Bible and getting a clearer and deeper understanding can be increased by memorizing favorite scriptures and meditating on Godís word. Using a devotional or a translated Bible can help you with understanding to avoid misinterpretation.

Pray

One of the greatest weapons a Christian believer has is prayer. Acknowledge your weaknesses in prayer and ask for Godís help in overcoming them. When you pray, believe that God hears your prayer.

Fellowship

It is very important to fellowship or assemble together with other believers. One of the main purposes of a fellowship is to encourage one another and learn from each other's past experiences.

As you mature as a Christian, continue all of these activities on a regular basis to stay strong and obedient to the Word and the examples set by Jesus Christ.

God Bless!
