Sin no more.
John 5: 14.

Jesus said these words to a lame man, whom he had just healed. For 38 years that man had suffered from his illness. Now he had been cured in a miraculous way. Everything now seemed to be all right in his life, but the Lord had a matter to discuss with him that he probably did not think about: sin. Now sin means living and acting without considering the will of God. And that applies to us all.

Whoever is in dire trouble wishes to be rid of it as quickly as possible. Many people then pray. And sometimes God actually helps just as we wish. The illness, or whatever it is, passes; so life can proceed quite normally. But then those inconvenient words: “Sin no more” crop up.

We see it so easily in others: egotism, a lack of love etc.. Here it concerns our own sins. God is well aware of them.

Whoever endeavours to lead a perfect life soon notices that he eventually fails. What we need is the forgiveness of old wrongdoings and also the strength to lead a new life. Only Jesus Christ can bring this about. Therefore He suffered on the cross for our sins. We should confess them frankly before God and rest on Christ’s work of redemption by faith. Then we shall be forgiven and freed from our oppressive burden.

Then the new life that every believer receives from God makes itself noticed in a remarkable way. We suddenly feel horror over a sinful way of life and rejoice in all that is well-pleasing to God. Then, in the strength that God grants, we can live happily to His honour and glory.

Today‘s reading: 1 Samuel 1: 12 – 28 · Ephesians 4: 1 – 10
