The key to removing sin in your life is KNOWING that Jesus has REMOVED your sins. KNOWING who you are in Christ. KNOWING you are not a sinner anymore. It’s NOT about you trying to not sin, but about KNOWING He has provided by taking ALL sins of the WORLD in His own body. KNOWING you DO NOT have a sinful nature. It’s about KNOWING your identity in Christ and your identity is RIGHTEOUSNESS! And once YOU KNOW THIS – you will sin less than you have ever tried on your own. His righteousness will pour out of you! Don’t focus on the old you, but
FOCUS ON THE NEW YOU IN CHRIST JESUS
