Do you know your ABCs? A - Admit that you are a sinner. B - Believe that Jesus is God's son and that He died on the cross for your sins. C - Confess your Faith in Jesus as your Savior and Lord!

Many of us are bombarded with sin from our pasts.  It creeps up on us, many times, when we feel at our best…when things are going well, relationships are flourishing, and self-respect is high.  Score one for the devil?

Certainly not!  The Bible gives us assurance that our sins are forgiven…if we simply humble ourselves and ask our Heavenly Father.  “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature;  old things are passed away;  behold all things are become new”  (II Corinthians 5:17.)

When we submit our lives to God, we are new creatures.  Everyone who has lived on this earth, with the exception of our Lord, Jesus Christ, is a sinner.  All sins, great or small, cause division in our relationships (with God, with family, with friends);  however, when we ask for forgiveness, God is faithful to forgive.  The next step for us is stepping away from the sin…the temptations…and following God’s will.

Don’t let sin control you!  When we become Christians, God gets to work with a major spiritual “heart-cleaning”!  He makes us new creatures!  After that, our work begins.  It’s up to us to follow His example and get rid of the garbage hanging around in our lives!  Throw it out!  God has…so why not follow His lead?  Spread your wings and get busy with His work!  You will find that your life will be so much better…so blessed…for your obedience!

Stay strong and as always…have a faith-fashioned day!
