How Does Grace Help

How does Grace help? I'm confessing sins all day long as I'm aware of it. I'm afraid not to confess it. It may pile up. Romans 6:1 shall we continue to sin that Grace may abound, God forbid. Born of God-does not sin? But, I sin. I know - I'm not happy. How do I apply grace - I can not ignore sin.

Christian Saints serve Christ, and sinners serve sin: "Every good tree brings forward good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forward bad fruit. A good tree cannot bring forward bad fruit, neither a corrupt tree bring forward good fruit. Every tree that brings not forward good fruit is cut down, and thrown into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits you all will know them. Wosoever is born of God does not commit sin, for his seed remains in him and he cannot sin, because he is born of God."

Page two>>>Justification===deals with the penality for sin. Sanctification===deals with the power of sin. Justification==is a declarative act of God. Sanctification==is a progressive act of God. Both works of God deals with the sinner. Justification with the unsaved sinner. Sanctification with the saved sinner.The end result of justification is salvation, The end result of sanctification is obedience. Justification and sanctification are two aspects of the one work of God in saving men.>>Page three

Page three>> A living sacrifice===The surest evidence of our spiritual life is the dedication of ourselves to God.===To converse with God, to have a regard to Him, a delight in Him, this is to be alive to God [otherwise you are dead]....There is no living---------to God---------but through Him.+ The end

As those that are alive from the dead. To yield a dead carcase to a living God is not to please Him, but to mock Him. "Yield yourselves as those that are alive and good for something".>>>Grace: Undeserved acceptance and love received from another. In our case God. Never, never, ignore sin. This is the very worse sin that God's people can do. Whoever said born of God does not sin? Because the truth is, yes it does. Page two please read. Thank you.

Christians serve Christ, not sin. So I must ask, Why are you sinning all day long, rather than doing good all day long? Do you not know that every time you choose to sin you are nailing inncocent Christ to the cross all over again and again and again? If you love him, then keep his Commandments, and bring a joyful smile to his face rather than shame.
---Eloy on 5/5/08

Linda3939: Yes we are to confess our sins when we are aware of them. But the sins are not counted against a true child of God(one who has accepted Christ) This is where Grace" comes in. God's love and grace covers these sins and when we confess to God,the Father, in Jesus name, we are forgiven or pardoned.Confessing is the key to forgiveness. Not the sin,itself. I hope I have helped some angel.
---Robyn on 5/4/08

Be convinced that it's his will to forgive you. Search the phrases when Jesus said "your sins are forgiven" and see again that those who were forgiven had great joy and experienced healing. They were oridany sin stricken people.

Think now- the ones who would have nothing to do with him sinnned already. Is the crowd holding you back? Jesus wants to go with you in every thought when you leave your kness. When you fail he forgives. If your not sick of it yet you will be, just don't let go.
---Pharisee on 4/19/08

If you're walking around always being sin-conscious, how do you have time to Keep your eyes fixed upon JESUS? Your focus should be on Jesus and Him shedding His blood for your sins and knowing you are FORGIVEN! Past, present and future. The blood of Jesus cleanses you from ALL sin. The Holy Spirit will convict you of the sins you need to confess. God knows we're going to sin, that's why the blood of Jesus was shed for us. YOU ARE FORGIVEN!!!!!

Have you been in Christ-centered counseling? God's prepared people to minister through the person of Christ in them, the power of the Holy Spirit & Word of God to the abused. I hope He'll guide you to that person who can help you gain freedom & joy. I focus on the abuse because I've lead in a lay counseling ministry for abused women. We've dealt with issues coming forth in sharing & discussion that they'd no idea their feelings & thoughts were contaminated by the abuse, they had lived with them so long.
---Linda on 9/24/06

After abuse in a person's life, it's common for them to think the sin acted upon them was a result of something they did to cause the abuse. If you were abused for 30 yrs, you may have much conflict in your emotions & thought life. Feeling weighed down by sin can be a tool Satan uses to keep you captive in thoughts & emotions that are'nt allowing you to experience God's grace. What happened to you was not your fault! False guilt, from the abuse, is subtle & requires help to find where it is coming from.

Thank you Lisa!

Perfect Grace means forgiveness of all sins for those who are trully repentant, regardless of the number of times. Trully repentant means sincere regret fro sin and longing for rigtheousness. perfect Grace also means the provision of power to be righteous for those who want to. Maybe that's where you've missed it, you want to be but you are trying to by your own strength. When you ought to ask God for the power from on high that will transform you into his rigtheousness automatically.

2. Many people have gone through so much in life that others would never understand. There is much hurt and pain there, but time with Christ will make you forgive others, for your sake only, to give you peace. How do you apply grace? Read more about God. You will learn not to excuse sin and will move away from it as you walk with God.
---lisa on 9/23/06

Linda, you are human with a commitment to Christ. It does not mean you are sinless. It means that the Holy Spirit will began to clean much of your life. It does not happen in a minute but through your walk with Christ. You are now a child of God and you will confess much all through your life. As you grow in Christ, you will see the changes in you little by little and sometimes you don't even realize you gave up something you did that was wrong. You just stopped.
---lisa on 9/23/06

Linda, why are you confessing your sins all day long. Are you continuously doing something you shouldnt be doing? Shall we continue to sin? No.You should know if your born of the spirit.If you are continuously sinning, then you havent completly made a turn around in your life and give it to the Almighty God.How do you apply grace? Just take it its free and be serious about your decision. This is not a joking matter friend. Be serious for Jesus.

Praise God even when you are in storms... God inhabits the praises of His people.

Also know that you don't have to keep asking for forgiveness over and over once you truly repent... Thank God for your forgiveness and ask Him to help you learn the next step in your personal walk with Him.

See you in the sky!
---Amy9384 on 9/22/06

Sweet Linda,
Don't ignore sin, just don't focus on it. We all fall short daily. Remember Whose you are. You belong to God through the blood of Jesus once you have confessed.

Fear is not from God. Neither is guilt. Satan uses tools like these to keep Christians crippled.
---Amy9384 on 9/22/06

Those renewed, restored & regenerated from above thru the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, having accepted & confessed the Father word of salvation thru the atoning sacrifice of Jesus does not sin. For sin is missing that mark. The error of our thinking is & will always be revealed to us by His grace. By recognition of that error we receive His truth which dispels it. With true repentance comes reformation or a corresponding change of attitude & actions thru the empowerment of His Spirit. Peace be
---Josef on 9/22/06

Grace is a divine influence upon ones heart or ones central focus in life. A guiding favor, support & act of unmerited kindness that brings one into the condition of being made approvable, without blame & acceptable our Fathers sight. If we confess our error He is just to forgive us & to cleanse us from all unrighteousness, Grace. It is by grace thru Godly sorrow that we are lead to repentance. The cleansing in our lives takes place as the error within us is revealed by truth thus freeing us of the error.

You cannot apply grace. What is grace? Grace is God's unearned favor toward you. I bet you are afraid you will loose your salvation if you don't confess all of your sins, right? God saved you, didn't he? If he has the power to save you doesn't he also have the power to keep you? Do you know for sure you are going to heaven without a doubt?
