Key: It’s been said that when we give our lives to Christ, we nail our old life to the cross and then become a new person. But it’s so sad that most times we keep going back to the cross to take it back after nailing it there.
There are so many words flying around that you can commit same sin over and over because God is merciful and will receive us but there is one thing I know and it is if you repent from a sin once and you get forgiven it’s better not to go back to it again because the more you go back is the more you change, you can’t be the same person you were at first. Yes, you will be forgiven but you can’t be the same person as when you were initially forgiven.
Your confidence won’t be intact, you won’t have full faith in yourself and you won’t even see yourself as a serious person and it will take only the grace of God to help you be whole.
Why go back to take up a sin that you have considered dead to you, what does the living have with dead things?
Reflection: Going back to the sin you just nailed to the cross is a disadvantage to you.
