I’ve been thinking about sin. Mainly how if plays itself out in addictions and continuous failure. I often times hear about and have experienced myself the feeling of being trapped in sin. I think many people feel trapped because there is sin in their past and in their future. That sin is sandwiching them, being in front and behind.
The answer is by grace Christ died for the removal of our sins. Meaning that he has wiped the past clean and in our repentance by accepting this grace our future sins are removed. to put it simply; He erases our past and leads us on a path to life instead of destruction. Now we are no longer trapped by sin on both sides but he has given us a new life altogether as his children.
1 peter 2:24 says “He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness..”
