Overcoming sin our lives is a lifelong process. The issue often is, “How do I overcome sin in my life?” Let me share with you some steps you can take to overcome sin in our lives.
1. Recognize the presence of sin our flesh – “Romans 7:21 “… When I would do good, evil is present with me.”
2. Have a heart fixed on God – Psalm 57:7 “My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.”
3. Meditate on God’s Word – Psalm 119:11 “Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.”
4. Commune regularly with God is prayer. – I Thessalonians 5:17 “Pray without ceasing”
5. Practice obedience – I John 3:9 “Whosoever is born of God doth not practice sin…”
6. Seek a godly accountability to remain pure – James 5:14 “Is any among you weak? Let them call for the elders of the church …”
Living the Spirit-filled life does not come through mystical application, but from studying and submitting ourselves to the Word of God.
