Dead to Sin; 7 Steps to Live a Sinless Life!

Dead to sin means that your soul is not controlled by the influence of sinful demons. It is a status of freedom from the bondage of sin.

We are surrounded by sins! Iniquities in the government, society and in many churches controlled by false Pastors or Prophets. I was confused when some leaders who were expected to uphold righteousness told me that no one can be free from sin. Dead to sin looks impossible!

However, God hates sin and does not want us to perish inside the stronghold of sin. He sent Jesus Christ to the world for the last Blood sacrifice to deliver us from the bondage of sin. Can Jesus make you dead to sin?

Today’s message explains the basic steps to take for a sinless life.

7 Ways to Become Dead to Sin

1. Marry the Bible

Going to church, participating in doctrinal rites, pumping your money to pastor for godly forgiveness or rendering service for the progress of the Gospel does not make you dead to sin. The secret code is reading and understanding the Word of God.

2. Make Covenant of Obedience

You cannot be dead to sin if you don’t make covenant with the LORD to obey every word and every instruction from HIM. Your absolute readiness to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ is a strong step.

3. Invite the Holy Spirit

Having confess your sins and choose to give all your life to the LORD to control, the next step is to invite the Spirit of GOD to dwell in you permanently. He releases Power of Holiness to you every time you encounter temptation and you’ll become dead to sin.

4. Don’t Copy the World

Be bold to say ‘No’ to all the popular non-scriptural practices going on in the church and around you. Raise a red card to anyone or any technology that could influence you to live a lukewarm life.

“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (John 15:19)

5. Always Ask Yourself

You’ll become dead to sin if you cultivate the lifestyle of asking yourself this question: ‘If Jesus Christ is presently in my situation, what will He do?’ Jesus Christ is in you to give the quick answer and His response will surely make you sinless.

“Jesus answered and said to him, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him.” (John 14:23)

6. Offer Your Body as a Living Sacrifice

Many people could not be sinless because they don’t want any short-term pains or sufferings but they want to enjoy all the worldly deceptive entertainment and acquire wealth and fame by all means.

“For it is better, if it is the will of God, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil.” (1 Peter 3:17)

7. Timeless Worship

Jesus was dead to sin when on earth because He worship the LORD every day and night. Sin could not have its way into heaven because the angels worship the LORD regularly. Always worship the LORD steadily in your heart and you’ll become sinless.


If the LORD told me to preach to the world that HE would forgive any sin provided the sinner is ready to follow HIM, then I believe GOD is not happy seeing anyone in sin. I follow the steps above and I have testimonies every day!

I urge you to follow the powerful ways above and you would surely be dead to sin.
