Do you want to live a more holy life?
Would you like to see less sin in your life?
I hope that as a born again believer you answered yes to both those questions.
Well, I can give you the answer this morning; I can tell you how to see less sin in your life and how to live a more holy life.
And the good news is you do not need to try, strive or achieve; you simply need to truly understand a Biblical truth about your identity.
YOU ARE RIGHTEOUS!
There you have it; it is that simple.
According to the Word you have been made righteous if you have faith and trust in Jesus (2 Corinthians 5 v 17 to 21 and Ephesians 4 v 24).
According to the Word if you wake up to or become aware of righteousness you will sin not (1 Corinthians 15 v 34).
What an amazing and simple truth.
If we believe we are righteous we will behave in a righteous manner.
You see there is another essential Biblical truth that is behind this; as a man thinketh so is he (Proverbs 23 v 7).
The way your mind goes is the way your life goes.
If you think you are a sinner you will behave like a sinner, but the good news is that you are not a sinner anymore, you are a saint and you are righteous.
You need to truly believe this truth!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that as a gift of grace through faith in Jesus I am a saint and I am righteous”.
1 Corinthians 15 v 34…..Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame
