Then He said to them, “Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luke 24:46 - 47 NKJV 

The problem of sin and the guilt of it, is something many persons have struggled with for the longest time. Many people believe they're bound to sin. In fact, many have come up with a quote "aren't we all sinners?" And this is simply because they themselves think they're bound to sin. 

It's important to note that sin surrounded the fall of man. It's the origin. And if Jesus came to restore man from the fall, then it's ironic to think that He did that restoration, without solving the problem of sin. What was man's problem with sin? All were born in sin, all were subject to the sin nature, all were subject to the wages of sin, and all were subject to the guilt of sin. 

This was man's battle with sin. Should these still be your problem today? Definitely not! Why? Because Jesus has come and has solved all these problems in His eternal sacrifice for all of mankind! What did John the Baptist say about Jesus? Behold the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (John 1:29). 

Understand the results of what Jesus did. He took your punishment for sin upon Himself, then paid the price to redeem you from sin and it's power, then changed the kind of person you are from one who was subject to sin, to a man of righteousness, and finally his blood purges your conscience. You cannot afford to think you're guilty! Why wouldn't you simply accept this new life and truth today? 

Prayer: Dear Father, I realise that I don't have a problem with sin. Jesus my Lord already solved it through His eternal sacrifice! And I accept it! I am free from the wages of sin. I am free from the power of sin. I am free from the guilt of sin. Now I walk in the righteousness of God, in Jesus name. Amen!
