3 Reasons We Can Overcome Sin: Power, Motive, and Calling

3 Reasons We Can Overcome Sin: Power, Motive, and Calling
When we sin, we need to acknowledge, confess and repent of our sins (1 John 1:8-10). 

But we also need to make progress in defeating sin in our lives because:

1. We have a "power source" beyond ourselves:
Philippians 4:13: For I can do everything through Christ who gives me strength. 

2. We have a motivation beyond ourselves:
Romans 12:1: Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God--this is your true and proper worship. 

3. We have a calling beyond ourselves:
1 Thessalonians 4:7: For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life.

Only as we let God’s Spirit govern our choices and desires will we gain freedom over sin (Romans 8:6).
