Free from sin?!!

I bet some of you are wondering how on earth I could possibly make a claim to being free from sin. You are probably thinking that I am this ridiculous, little, self-righteous liar and that I cannot possibly be speaking the truth. “I mean, how can anyone be free from sin?!” Please keep reading. đŸ™‚ I am here to clear the air on this one, and to explain how it is that I can make this claim.  About twelve years ago when I was seven I heard the gospel given at the church my family and I were attending. I don’t remember the exact words the preacher had said but I do know that he told us about Jesus, the Son of God and how he had lived a perfect life while he was on the earth and that he was falsely accused of blasphemy and sentenced to death. He had a crown of thorns placed upon his head and  was beaten cruelly, then he was hung on a cross with his arms extended and nailed to the branches of the cross. There he suffocated to death, and paid the price for our sins with the blood that was shed. After being buried for three days, Jesus arose and came back to life, showing that he had conquered death and had power over it.  The preacher then went on and  told us that if any of us believed this, then would we follow him in a simple prayer known as the sinner’s prayer. I did believe and gave my life to Jesus, at that moment because of Jesus’ sacrifice for my sins God forgave me for the lies that I told, the horrible thoughts that had entered my head and for every wrong thing that I had done and would do. At that time my track record up in heaven was replaced with Jesus’ record, thus erasing my sin and making me a child of God. As a child of God, I was given the power to be free from sin, meaning I don’t need to sin any more and if I do choose to sin, then that sin is not on my record because Jesus paid the ultimate price for ALL of my sin, and by doing so, every time that I do something wrong, that sin is placed on Jesus and is covered with his blood thus erasing it.  So does this make me this perfect person who never sins? Yes! But only in the eyes of God. I am still tempted and deceived by Satan. I still falter, make mistakes and sin, but when God looks at me all he sees is the blood of Jesus his only begotten son covering me and making me perfect. That is how I am free from sin.  If you have ever sinned ( which we all have!) and you don’t know how to stop sinning than all you’ve got to do is believe in the name of Jesus, your sins will be erased, every wrong thing that you’ve done and will do will not be committed to your record up in heaven and you will live forever with Jesus Christ up in heaven after your journey on this earth is completed.
