This month as we continue in the lent season we have been reflecting of JESUS CHRIST as the TRIUMPH OF FAITH.

Today we particularly look at the fact of His Triumph over sin.
The Scriptures state that “For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin.” Hebrews 4:15.

Furthermore the coming of Jesus Christ as the second Adam was to open a new chapter in living in newness of sin free nature.

Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law. Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.”- Romans 5:12-14

How did he do that? He overcame the temptations to sin by submitting his Spirit, Soul and body to the powerful influence of His love for the Father.

In other word he loved the father so much not to sin. His passion to please the father was paramount over the lure of the sin.

The scriptures record his submission to the father thus.
“Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God”-
Hebrew 10:7

In this lent season we are therefore to embrace Christlikeness in our dispositions toward God and others we too overcome the control of sin I our lives. Scriptures admonish us thus:-

“Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” -Romans 6:12-14.

The Love of the Father in us is a constraining force against antagonistic forces of sinful tendencies as we shall learn in our reading today.(Luke 4.31-40). James defines sin in a descriptive manners thus “If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn't do it, it is sin for them.” James 4:17

We as the Pastoral team wish to encourage each of you to embrace the triumphant love of God to overcome the sins of omission or commission that we may be tempted with.
Have a triumphant week in Jesus Christ.
