living in sin



•••if we deliberately keep on sinning•••

Think about that. There's a difference between "sinning" and "deliberately sinning" or "living in a sin", God judges our hearts so it's up to him. But, take a look at your lifestyles. Multiple times God's word talks about the person who keeps deliberately sinning and how they are separated from God.

All of us will keep sinning daily and Jesus came to take that sin; but, "choosing" our deliberate sin and walking in that sin causes a wedge with us and the Father. He cannot entertain sin or compete with sin because he is so Holy.

Hebrew 10:24-26

"And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God."

1 John 3:5-10

"But you know that he {Jesus} appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him.

Dear children, do not let anyone lead you astray. The one who does what is right is righteous, just as he is righteous. The one who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. No one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in them; they cannot go on sinning, because they have been born of God. This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not God’s child, nor is anyone who does not love their brother and sister."

••the wedge of deliberate sin causes us to miss out on the full experience of God and Holy Spirit in our lives. If we do not have an open heart, our hearts cannot be full of Him. We do not experience God fully in our lives when we try to walk with both our sin and God.••
