There is no doubt that we all are sinners. Due to Adam’s disobedience, we all lost our glorious position which the Lord made in the beginning. Now sin is ruling over our physical body and always trying to separate us from the Lord by its unrighteous works.
Though we have sin in us yet we can overcome it with the blood of Jesus Christ that he shed on the cross. We must defeat the power and works of sin to fulfill God’s righteousness. Every day we come across various temptations that drag us out of the presence of God. But we need to know the way that will lead us to overcome sin and temptation.
Jesus says he is the only way that can lead us to the father so we can overcome sin and temptation by accepting him and following his words.
