Review: Is God punishing me for my sins? No, you are dead to sin.
God is not punishing you for your sins and is not angry with you. Hebrews 10:14 says, “For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.” Hebrews 10:17-18 says, “And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.”
Jesus perfected every believer forever. His sacrifice completely removed all of our sins. There is nothing that will ever separate us from God again. The only sin man will ever be judged for again is not accepting Jesus Christ. This is the “sin” talked about in Hebrews 10:26. The author of Hebrews was explaining to the Jewish believers if they reject Christ after knowing the truth, there is no longer any other sacrifice for them. If you believe in Christ, you have been perfected forever. You don’t need to worry about the judgment of God ever again.
In Romans 5 Apostle Paul taught that when you sin, you are still righteous because of the obedience of one Man, Jesus. There is no sin you can commit that will make you unrighteous because our righteousness is a gift. In fact, when you sin, grace actually abounds much more. Every one understands the concept of the law. If you sin, God punishes you, and if you obey, God blesses you. But Paul is explaining that even when you sin, God still blesses you. Most people will tell you that this “gives people a license to sin.” But Paul says in Romans 6:1-2 that this is not possible. Paul explains that we are “dead to sin.” Romans 6:10-11 explains that we died to sin with Jesus once for all of our sins. We are “dead” to the punishment and guilt of sin. Does that mean we will never sin again. No, but the sin has already been dealt with. We are dead to the punishment of sin so we can live the life that Jesus purchased for us.
Sin used to own us, and we were “slaves” or owned by sin. Jesus came to purchase our freedom and release us from sin, our slave owner. We are now owned by righteousness. Romans 6:18 tells us, “We have been set free from sin and have become slaves of righteousness.”
Prayer: 10 Minutes:
If there is any situation in your life that needs prayer, ask the Holy Spirit to pray through you for that situation. The Holy Spirit makes intercession for us according to the will of God. It is the perfect prayer and is always answered!
