Ten Bible Passages on Resisting Sin

The Bible (699pic.com)

God loves everyone He creates. Whatever sin people made is in the past, God renews and cleans if people repent and confess their sins to Him.

However, some are caught by sin many times and don't want to seek His help. They're prone to doubt God's love at a low time and the devil accuses them of their sin. Ashamed, they stay further from God.

In fact, God loves everyone regardless of who they are. He forgives all who repent and supports those who ask Him for help.

Below are ten Bible passages to help resist sin and ask for His forgiveness after sinning:

Proverbs 28:13-14 
    Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper,
    but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
     Blessed is the one who always trembles before God,
    but whoever hardens their heart falls into trouble.

James 4:7-8 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Psalm 1:1-3 Blessed is the one
    who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
    or sit in the company of mockers,
     but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.
   That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
    which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither-
    whatever they do prospers.

Isaiah 55:7-9 
Let the wicked forsake their ways
    and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
    and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
   "For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
    neither are your ways my ways,"
declares the Lord.
   "As the heavens are higher than the earth,
    so are my ways higher than your ways
    and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Ephesians 4:20-24
That, however, is not the way of life you learned  when you heard about Christ and were taught in him in accordance with the truth that is in Jesus.  You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

Romans 12:1-2
Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship.Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you;
    do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
    I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Psalm 139:2-6

You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
   You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
   Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
   You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
   Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Philippians 4:6-7 
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
