How To Bear Your Sins

He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree . . . (1 Peter 2:24)

I have to apologize right off the bat because my title is misleading. There is no way to bear your sins. That porn can’t be unseen. Your adultery can’t be undone. Your lies can’t be untold. Your angry words can’t be unsaid. The damage done by your words and actions have an annoying tendency to hang around . . . for a long time. And quite frankly, you cannot bear the guilt of these sins. I’ve seen countless people try and fail to hide their sins and put on a good front for the world. It never works. Never.

What does work, however, is releasing your stranglehold on your sins. Turn them over to the One who can bear them. Jesus Himself bears your sins. He bore them in His body when He hung from the cross. There is no sense in attempting to do what Jesus has already done; something you can’t even do anyways!

Jesus, take my sins. Amen
