Sinning over and over...

Its so easy to ask God for forgiveness, whenwe remember...Its so easy to pray to God and confess to Him the things we have said and done that we shouldn't have...
Its so easy to walk away and think, all is OK now, and then carry on living your life...
Its so easy to make the  same sin over and over and over again...
and then repeat the cycle..

But is it easy to walk in the right path, not sinning, repenting our sin and actually not repeating it ever again? Well for me, it isn't.
I am going through a patch in my life now where I feel that I have sinned too much. That I have repeatedly made the same sin over and over and confesses the same sin to God, and then done it again the next day after promising that I wont.
You can do this for so much time, but after awhile it catches up on you. You have weird dreams, you have constant memories of the wrong things you have done in your past, you are repeatedly reminded that what you are doing is wrong, against Gods way and frankly against everything that God is.
Where to now I ask??

James 2:10 says that if we only just break one part of the law, we are guilty of breaking all of it! Well I am pretty messed then.
Our conscience tells us to sin. Everything we do is given to us by our conscience. God gave us our conscience, so when we sin, its like we are disregarding God totally and spitting in His face.
Romans 2:5 goes on to tell us that everything we do on earth is getting piled up against our name awaiting judgement day and the wrath of God will be poured out on us because of our sin.
Oh this is just making me feel wonderful! I am destined for the wrath of God!

BUT...

There is a very important that we were given. A gift from God. A gift that saves us from this hold that sin has on us.A gift that was purely given for all us on earth.
That gift is Jesus Christ. He was born, He lived, He saved and performed miracles and then He died a horrible excruciating death on the cross....All for us!

God gave us another gift...GRACE. Grace is Gods kindness to people that don't deserve it.
Matthew 5:3 - Blessed are the poor in Spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

What do we do:
Admit we need forgiveness.
Tell God about how bad your sin is.
Know that Jesus was put on earth for our sins (from God).
After this, realise that you are set free from all sin and the wrath of God. In other words, You have already been saved!

Its difficult to comprehend this but once you have accepted Jesus, you are saved through Gods grace and your sins or 'forgotten' through the blood shed from Jesus!
Isn't this a great opportunity.
Isn't God a great God!
God knows our heart! He knows when we do things and why and how we do things. We need to try and repent, even though we sin over and over, God Grace abounds!

Blessings
