In Touch Daily Devotional 3rd September 2022 MESSAGE
Christ’s sacrifice on the cross paid for all our sins, but believers are still susceptible to temptation and disobedience.

See sin as the Lord sees it. Our God is absolutely pure. To Him, every sin is an offense that violates His law, grieves the Holy Spirit, and belittles Christ’s sacrifice.

Confess it. Agreeing with God about our wrongdoing is a blessed privilege. Once we confess, He washes us clean of the guilt and empowers us to turn away from that sin in repentance. In this way, we can begin walking afresh in holiness.
Although John explained how to deal with sin, his main purpose was to encourage us to turn from it and walk in obedience to God. Sin should be the exception in our life—not the rule.

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
