As Christians we continue to battle against our sins. God makes no promises that when we become his children that life will become easy or that we will instantly overcome the trials of this world. Instead, Christ has broken the chains of sin on our lives. He promises us that we do not have to sin, but that we are given the power to not sin by leaning on Christ’s victory in the cross. The Gospel (death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ) frees us from being slaves to sin. The Gospel is not something we only need to look to once in our lives, but we need to look to it every day of our lives. It gives us peace, true peace, in a world of sin, pain, and brokenness.
