For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of GOD’s glorious standard. We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind. But thank GOD! HE gives us victory over sin and death through our LORD Jesus CHRIST. Romans 3:23; Isaiah 64:6; 1 Corinthians 15:57.
NOTE: Several different words are used by Paul in Greek writings to describe the tendency of humans to rebel against GOD. Ahh! All forms of Sins are making mankind to be “missing the mark” or “remain disobedient to GOD’s law” as matter of act, of thought, or of inner disposition or state.
Today, CHRIST-like living in the light, as GOD is in the light, will bear me witness that it is not possible to satisfy GOD without Holy SPIRIT. Sincerely, Our victory against sin-borne-flesh has really been made easy by Holy SPIRIT, ushered in by the redeemer, after we have confessed our known sins, forsake them all, and cleansed (not just covered) ..”we now have fellowship with each other, and the blood of Jesus CHRIST, the LAMB of GOD, cleanses us from all sin.”
See, If we reluctantly claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the TRUTH. But if we confess our sins to HIM, HE is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness. Peace be unto You!
