The Solution for Sin

John 8:34-36, "Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you frees, ye hall be free indeed."
Too often we get this thing about sin backwards by saying that we sin because we are in bondage. How often have you heard someone say, "Well, I'm only human" as an excuse for his sin? How about this one: "Well, I was born that way."
It is true that we are born with a sin nature, but when you receive the free gift of salvation through Christ alone, He MAKES you free. Sinning, then, is not a result of addiction, but rather, you are held in addiction as long as you choose to sin.
The solution is very simple for the Christian: yield to the leadership of the Holy Spirit in your life, and don't sin. Galatians 5:16 says, "This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh."
