Grace Swallows Up Sin Pt 2

There are 2 great truths found in (Rom 5:20) . Truths that will help us practically to break free from sin in our daily lives:

Truth No 1Made any mistakes recently?  Had any failures?  Ruined any relationships?  Lapsed back into sin? Are we struggling with guilt, condemnation, shame, hopelessness etc as a result of our wrongs.

But doesn’t (Rom 8:1) say, there is now therefore, no condemnation to those in Christ Jesus. Yes it does! So why are we still laden down with burdens we should have shed a long time ago. It’s because we are living with an Old Covenant  approach to forgiveness.

What we didn’t realise is that there are 2 parts to God’s forgiveness. There is (1) God’s forgiveness of our sins and (2) God’s removal of our sins. If we received (1) without receiving (2) we will find that although God has forgiven our sin, we’ve allowed it to remain on our conscience. And sin left on our conscience is an open door for satan to come in and play havoc in the room of our heart and use accusation to stir up condemnation and guilt etc.

Eg – We’ve recently remarried but we still carry the guilt for the awful way we mistreated our first husband/wife. We can’t seem to shake it off, and whenever we remember it, the guilt tears our heart to shreds, leaving us stressed, anxious and depressed.

It’s the remembering that’s the problem and it’s because we are living under an Old Covenant (OC) mindset with regards to God’s forgiveness of sin.

Next week we will look at how to come out from under the OC sacrificial system of law that fosters a remembrance of sin and come under the NC sacrificial system of grace that has removed and totally forgotten sin.

Meditation Point: Read and meditate on Hebrews 10:1-18.
