Is it possible to be sin free? The Bible says: Yes!
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21)
“Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.” (Romans 6:18)

What is hope? Everyone has hope. Everyone has hope to receive something for their walking, their faith, their work. But what is the True hope, the hope that will not put you to shame, that will not fail?
“O wretched man that I am! Who shall deliver me from the body of this death?” (Romans 7:24) How many times have you heard this scripture in sermons that justify the sinful nature of a person? Typically it goes like this: “Well even Paul called himself a wretched man, that he’s a sinner. And if Paul was like this, then what can we say about ourselves?” But what is Paul really writing about here? Is this the condition (the condition of a wretched man) of a person who is born again, born from above? Paul is writing about the condition of war, a condition where you are in constant battle between the law (which is good) and sin (which is bad). This is the condition of a person who is under the law. Christ came to free us from the law and from the wretched state, from sin!
I always found it interesting, why the Bible is split into two, why there is an Old Testament and a New Testament. Behind these testaments, stand a covenant. I like to think of these covenants as being a model for our relationship to God. In what position are we in relationship to God. It is important to understand these models and how they are different.
