"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."
(1 John 1:9 KJV)
"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."
(1 Peter 5:7 KJV)
At the end of each year, we should look back over the year and see if there are sins we continue to sin. Do we sin the same sin often enough to consider the sin "habitual?" These are sins we may need to find help to overcome. This may be in the form of a free program found in a church such as one called Celebrate Recovery (Matthew 5:3) or it may require a Biblical based counselor. Ask our Pastor Richard Stevens if this is a problem that you need some help with and where to get help.
List your sins that you did overcome and gave to Our Awesome God this year. Then list any new sins or possible sins you may have and be sure to ask God to show you any other sins you still have, bundle them all up and bring them to God in prayer, asking Him what to do to get rid of each one (Proverbs 3:5). Write down the answers He gives you and always make sure God is your partner in getting rid of your sins and it usually helps to have a human advocate who you are responsible to. Leaning on Our Awesome God and depending on His help is the only way to be sure the sin is gone (Psalm 8:124).
So take all the sins you have right now "bundle them" and, with God's help, figure out how you are getting rid of each. Work on not sinning, one sin at a time. Get your New Year's Resolutions, which should include your sins, together and start on them now. Ask our Pastor about help from Celebrate Recovery. You need success!
So if you are a Christian and believe in Jesus Christ, you should tell all that you meet about Jesus Christ and what He has done for you and your sins. If you aren't a Christian, you need to come to our church or any church that preaches and teaches that Jesus Christ died for you, taking your sins upon Himself and arose the third day to sit by God, interceding for you when you sin. Our Awesome God wants all to enjoy heaven with Him. He loves you! He wants you to love Him and obey Him!
