When Jesus meets a woman caught in adultery, He tells her to, “go and sin no more.” Jesus forgives us, so we will not repeat the same wrong behavior in the future. When He forgives, He expects us to turn away from sin.
The apostle John recorded the account of the woman caught in adultery. He says in his first epistle, “Whoever abides in (Jesus) does not sin. Whoever sins has neither seen Him nor known Him.”
Peter tells us to adopt the mind of Jesus, to cease sinning, and to fulfill the will of God.
Paul warns us against taking advantage of the grace of God. He reminds us that we die to sin when we are baptized. God gives us a new life.
Can a Christian live in sin? The Bible’s message could not be more explicit: a Christian SHOULD NOT live in sin.
