The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
John 10:10 NIV
The devil only wants death in our lives and to do that he makes us sin.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23 NIV
Wherever there is sin, there will be death. For example cheating leads to a dying relationship; murder leads to a dying life; worrying leads to a dying rest etc.
Before Jesus came to die on the cross, sin had a power over us which causes death.
Jesus came to give us much more than just forgiveness, He came so that we can have an amazing fully-lived life.
Jesus didn’t only forgive us of sin, He set us free of the power that sin has over us.
Sin that is forgiven still kills, but sin that has no power can’t kill anymore.
Now we can say “sin is not my master”
