You Don't Have to Sin


Believers in Jesus Christ don’t have to sin.

Oh but doesn’t it FEEL like we have to at times? Like when you’re tempted to lust.  Or when somebody gets in your face and accuses you unjustly.  Or when that guy behind you lays on his horn the second the light turns green? Or when your kids do something for the 875,000th time when you’ve told them not to?

How can any human being possibly not sin at times like these? Impure thoughts, rage, worry, envy and other temptations feel so strong they feel like they’re just, well….us.  They feel so strong that we have no other choice but to give in to them.  Or do we?
