On the subject of overcoming sin, a common misunderstanding among Christians is that Jesus has overcome sin on our behalf, and that His grace covers our sins. However, some two thousand years ago, Paul wrote: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not!” 

To understand how a Christian can live without committing sin, it is crucial to understand what the Gospel of God is: Jesus was a man like us (See Romans 1:1-4). He was tempted in all points like us, yet without sin (Hebrews 4:15-16). As Christians, we are called to true freedom from sin. Understanding what sin is, and the difference between temptation and sin , is also the foundation to understanding how to overcome sin. The Holy Spirit will lead us and give us power to overcome sin.

But can anyone testify to living this life of victory over sin? Here are some: Sam Petkau from Canada speaks about his faith in an overcoming life. Watch testimonies from some young people about how they follow Jesus’ example of overcoming sin in their everyday life.

May those who hate sin and long to live like Christ find this gospel, and start on the way of overcoming sin.
