When A Christian Sins


Satan does not stop working on people whenever they become Christians. Therefore, God inspired the author of Hebrews to write, “Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; but exhort one another daily, while it is called ‘Today,’ lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin” (Hebrews 3:12-13).

God wants His people to be encouraging one another to live for Him every day – because He knows that Satan is working fiercely to turn His people away from Him. He knows that Satan is “like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). He is deceptive and wants to destroy those who are God’s people.

And, sometimes, Satan is successful in his efforts. That is, sometimes Christians sin. Therefore, those who are Christians need to be aware of a few things. First, they must be aware of the fact that Christians can commit sin. Second, they need to recognize what their sin means. Third, they need to know how to correct the sin in their lives.

The purpose of this study is to instruct and encourage you in each of these points. So, if you are a faithful Christian without any sin in your life right now, this lesson is intended to help motivate you to keep yourself away from sin and provide you with the necessary instruction in case you do sin against God. Or, if you are currently a Christian who has gone back into sin, this lesson is intended to help open your eyes to the great spiritual danger you are in right now and help you understand how you can return to the Lord.
