Their is No! Sinless Perfection in the Flesh…

12 Apr


Romans 7:21-25, “I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.”

Many Christian Believers (and Non-Christian) operate under the belief that a born again Disciple of Christ should be perfect, Holy and sinless upon the acceptance of the Lord in Our life. This one of the biggest misconceptions about the Christian Faith, that causes many to be critical of the Cross and the finished work of Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul the Author of the book of Romans still struggled after His conversion to Christianity, even after being Spirit filled and having seen the Resurected Christ on His way to Damascus (Romans 9.) In actuality the sin nature of man is only made dormant upon being Baptized by the Spirit into Jesus Christ. The Bible reads in Romans 6:12-14, “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. In verse 14, the word dominion (which means rulership) says that sin will no longer control You as it did before, as every though that we had before the Blood of Christ was of iniquity (Romans 7:18.) The Word of God actually says none will be made perfect until the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in Philippians 3:21. Being that the flesh is carnal and cannot inherit the Kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 15:50.) This is why The Cross of Christ is so important, even though we inhabit and sinful existence The Blood of Jesus places all who Believe under the Grace of God. That when we do fall at times, we repent and turn from The Sin laying dormant in Our Spirit. This why the Apostle says that after the Cross in Romans 8: 1-4,”There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Christ makes all who are not perfect, perfect based on Our Faith in His finished work on the Cross. The Grace of God however, is not a license to sin knowing that we are not condemned for it, but a reminder that even though we are Saved we are ever so in need of a Savior, and should always look to The Word of God so that we do not fall back and live in the sin that Jesus has freed Us from. So when We in Our own lives, do not sometimes live up to the high standard of Holiness, know that many Believers still sin and as long as we learn from the trials of life Our Faith in a perfect God grants us grace to overcome. Shalom…
