Yes, Christians are sinners

Yes, Christians are sinners. We do thingsย  that we shouldn’t do everyday. No one is perfect. We all sin against God in our thoughts, words, and actions. Before we become Christians we don’t really think about the seriousness of our sins. We just did things because we wanted and it was fun.
When you surrender your life to God you will still sin but it won’t be the same. You will be CONVICTED. You will feel horribly wrong for what you have done and you will want to do better. No one can do better in their own strength. We need the Holy Spirit to help us. As you read your Bible and talk to God, He will transform your heart.
CHRISTIANS AREN’T SINLESS BUT THEY SHOULD SIN-LESS. We as Christians should not be doing all of the same things that we used to do before we were saved. My personal testimony is that I used to complain about everything. I was a huge complainer. I would find small things to complain about and make them a big deal just because I felt like it. But when I became a Christian and allowed God to cleanse me, my complaining began to come to end. I started to find the positives in every situation. If I said something negative I would follow up with two positive things. It was all a process but now people can talk to me and see a difference in my speech and attitude towards situations.
Christians don’t change over night and we are not perfect at all. But there are two main differences between an unsaved sinner and a saved sinner. First, a saved sinner does not have their sins held against them because they have accepted the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross. See, Jesus Christ dies for everyone’s sins but not everyone has accepted that free gift of salvation. Second, saved sinners are repentant. That means that when a Christian sins they know that what they did was wrong, they ask God for forgiveness, they accept the forgiveness, then they make up their mind to walk differently and not commit that same sin again.

Key Scriptures:
“Blessed is he whose transgression (sin) is forgiven, whose sin is covered” -Psalm 32:1

“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” -John 3:17

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” -Romans 3:23

“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ” -Philippians 1:6

“Do all things without complaining and disputing (arguing)” -Philippians 2:14
