Saturday, July 20th: 2 Chronicles 1:1-3:17, Romans 6:1-23, Psalm 16:1-11, Proverbs 19:20-21 ~ Tammy

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is 2 Chronicles 1:1-3:17, Romans 6:1-23, Psalm 16:1-11, Proverbs 19:20-21 

Romans 6:12 Do not let sin control the way you live;[a] do not give in to sinful desires.

We cannot make excuses for our sin, minimize our sin, or try to justify it in any way.  "I'm only human" does not fly.

It is true that we are not sinless, and we will be unable to attain perfection in this life.  But that doesn't mean we throw our hands up in despair.  And it certainly doesn't mean we allow sin to let loose or fester in our lives.

Rather we are to be purposeful in the purging of sin from our lives.  We are to rely on God's power through the Holy Spirit to transform us, and allow the grace of His forgiveness to wash us clean when we fail.
