BELIEVERS ARE SINLESS in JESUS CHRIST.
In the beginning, God created man (Adam) and gave him all the trees in the garden to eat. The tree of life (immortality) was a free gift. But Adam chose to do works to become like God by eating from the tree of knowledge of good/evil.
Adam tried to “BE” like God instead of receiving the free gift.
Adam’s sin was to do good and avoid evil to BE like God and he failed and fell short of God’s glory.
Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
The tree of knowledge of good/evil was fully revealed as the Law of Moses (covenant of doing works).
The tree of life is eternal life. God did not allow anyone to eat from it until Jesus came to end the law of works.
Jesus died on the cross to receive the wages of our sins.
He rose from the dead to give us the gift of eternal life.
The tree of life is faith in Jesus Christ to receive eternal life.
An unbeliever is dead in sin without Christ.
But the believer is sinless because we are in Christ.
Colossians 2 “9 For in Christ all the SINLESS PERFECTON of GOD lives in bodily form, 10 and in Christ YOU have been brought to SINLESS PERFECTION…..through FAITH….13 When you WERE DEAD in your sins God made you ALIVE with Christ. He FORGAVE us ALL our SINS, 14 having canceled the commands of works, which stood against us and condemned us; he has taken it away, nailing it to the CROSS”.
The believer cannot sin because we are not in sin.
The believer is sinless because Christ lives in us.
Galatians 2 “20 I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me.”
You cannot be in sin and Christ in the same time.
You cannot be in death and life at the same time.
We died and Christ lives in us and therefore we are sinless by faith.
Unbelievers are dead in sin because they don’t have Christ.
We have eternal life without sin because Christ lives in us.
1 John 5 “11 And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
Believe the Good News.
Don’t look at your behavior. Stop calling yourself as a sinner.
Look at Jesus who made you sinless.
Walk by FAITH and not by sight.
Ephesians 1 “3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with EVERY SPIRITUAL BLESSING in Christ…..to be HOLY and blameless….. In him we have redemption through his blood, the FORGIVENESS of SINS, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace”
Believers have the Forgiveness of sins.
Forgiveness means that you are sinless.
There is no sin in you because Christ lives in you.
It means that you have EVERYTHING Spiritually.
You are perfect and sinless because of Jesus.
It is not our works but Jesus did all the work for us believers!
