How can I be free from sin’s guilt and power?

Isaiah 1:18“Come now, let’s settle this,” says the lord. “Though your sins are like scarlet, I will make them as white as snow. Though they are red like crimson, I will make them as white as wool.”

Matthew 26:28“This is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many.”

2 Corinthians 5:21For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.

Romans 6:7For when we died with Christ we were set free from the power of sin.

Hebrews 9:14Just think how much more the blood of Christ will purify our consciences from sinful deeds so that we can worship the living God. For by the power of the eternal Spirit, Christ offered himself to God as a perfect sacrifice for our sins.

God has made it possible for the stain of your sin to be removed through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Psalm 19:12How can I know all the sins lurking in my heart? Cleanse me from these hidden faults.

Psalm 51:2-3Wash me clean from my guilt. Purify me from my sin. For I recognize my rebellion; it haunts me day and night.

Psalm 139:23-24Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life.

Galatians 3:22But the Scriptures declare that we are all prisoners of sin, so we receive God’s promise of freedom only by believing in Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:9But if we confess our sins to him, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

Ask God to cleanse your heart from sin. Confessing your sins to God and turning away from them and turning toward God to obey him is the only way to be free from sin’s power and your guilt. When you confess your sins to God, he forgives you and forgets them.

Romans 6:6, 18Our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin. . . . Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.

Galatians 5:24Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there.

Because of Jesus’ death and resurrection, those who have faith in him are free from the power of sin. This doesn’t mean you will no longer sin but that sin’s power to enslave you has been defeated.
