Experiencing Christ

We No Longer Have to be Bound by Sins

1Corinthians 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit.
Romans 8:4 That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the spirit.

…The Lord has saved us, and He is already our overcoming life. We can say, “Lord, I thank and praise You because Christ’s victory has become my victory! Lord, I thank and praise You because Christ’s holiness has become my holiness.”
It is Christ living for us. If a brother was previously bound by his temper, this temper should now go away. A brother might have been a doubting person, and his doubt may have troubled him much in the past. He might have been a talkative person, and his talkativeness may have been his frustration.
A person might have been bound by any one of the eight kinds of sins mentioned before and been very bothered by it. Now he can expect God to drive these sins away. Once a person has overcome, he should say to God, “Lord, I look to You to put these sins behind me.”

Many other problems related to sin have to be dealt with. For example, you might have offended others or offended the brothers. Now you have to apologize to them. Formerly, you did not have the strength to apologize; now you have the strength to do it. In the past, you might have been bound by something. Now Christ is living in you, and you are free. Hence, immediately after a brother or a sister enters the overcoming experience, he or she has to look to the Lord to remove his or her particular sin, that is the recurring sin which has been entangling him or her all the time….
