Christ came to set us free from the bondage of sin (Romans 6:3-6). Yet many Christians are content to remain enslaved to it. They have been convinced that we can never defeat sin; therefore, they have resigned themselves to the belief that they will always struggle with it.

Yet the Bible does not present the removal of sin from one’s life as an unattainable ideal but as a realistic goal. Paul says there is a way of escape for every temptation (1 Corinthians 10:13). Peter speaks of what one needs to do so that he will never stumble (2 Peter 1:10). John writes so that we may not sin (1 John 2:1). Jesus told the woman allegedly caught in adultery, “Go. From now on sin no more” (John 8:11).

But how can we successfully remove sin from our lives? We first need to understand the reasons why we sin so we can learn how to find the way of escape. If you want to overcome sin, rather than struggle perpetually, I invite you to study this material.

Christ came to make you free. “So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed” (John 8:36). Do you want freedom or bondage? The choice is up to you.
