What happens when we open doors?

What is sin? 
  • Disobedience to the truth, which is the word of God and the Holy Spirit. We gradually grow into obedience to the truth. Thus, we are accountable for doing the better that we know how to do. As we continue to grow spiritually, and get familiar with the word and the Holy Spirit, he will reveal to us through the word, circumstances, sermons, and born-again believers what we need to change [Read James 4].
  • In order to be obedient to the truth we have to know what it is; this means we have to read the word of God, and get to know the Holy Spirit.
How do we repent from sin? 
  • All repentance starts with a change of heart. What this means is that we have to decide in our heart that we never want to do that sin again. This doesn't mean that we have to know how to change from it. After we decide in our heart that we never want to do that sin again, we have to ask God for forgiveness. BTW, just because we decide in our heart that we never want to commit that sin again, doesn't mean that we will not commit the sin after our decision. However, what it does mean is that we following the lead of the Holy Spirit to eliminate the sin all together. Lastly, we have to ask the Holy Spirit for help to stay true to the repentance. 
What happens after we repent from sin?
  • Jesus Christ will never remember the sin that we've repented from anymore according to Hebrews 8:12. God never discipline us due to repentant sin, we must believe that in our heart. We should not allow the devil to make us feel guilty or ashamed. Just because we have repentant to God for a sin, doesn't mean it eliminates us from repenting to anyone impacted by our sin. We are still accountable for asking others for forgiveness when we've done wrong.
