Often when we think of sin we think of not doing this or that. Not smoking, not eating pork, not lying or stealing, etc. There’s nothing wrong with that because to overcome sin one must avoid wrong types of behavior. However, in this article let’s examine from a somewhat different perspective how you can overcome sin.
Those familiar with the commandments of God generally know what not to do, that is, the behavior we’re to avoid in order not to sin. But just knowing what not to do isn’t enough to overcome sin, that is, put sin out of your life and keep it out. Keeping yourself from sin requires establishing and maintaining in an active and positive way a right relationship with God. That is a key to conquering sin that we all must come to understand and practice.
What is your relationship with God? Do you understand its importance if you are to overcome sin?
