Here’s The Best Reason For Christians To Avoid Sin
We talk a lot about grace here. We teach total forgiveness. We teach no judgment, no punishment, no fear.
So, that yields an important question. Why not just sin all the time?
Here’s the #1 reason for Christians to avoid sin. It’s not fear. It’s not judgment. It’s not punishment. It’s identity. It’s about recognizing you have totally new desires.
Believe it or not, the old you was crucified with Christ. You are a new Creation.
Believe it or not, God removed your old heart of stone, and gave you a new heart, with new desires.
Believe it or not, the new you will never be fulfilled by sinning. You will only be fulfilled when you walk in the Spirit.
Believe it or not, it’s grace that leads to repentance.
You, my friends, have a new identity in Christ. That’s the reason to avoid sin. Live out why YOU ARE.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
