DEALING WITH SIN IN THE CHRISTIANS LIFE.

James 5:16-20 (NASB)

(16) Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another, so that

you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.

{17} Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it might

not rain; and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months.

{18} And he prayed again, and the sky poured rain, and the earth produced its fruit.

{19} My brethren, if any among you strays from the truth, and one turns him back,

{20} let him know that he who turns a sinner from the error of his way will save his

soul from death, and will cover a multitude of sins.

The following is the account of the conversion of Ty Cobb, that all-time great who played ,033 games and for 12 years led the American League in batting averages. For four years, he batted over 400.

On his death bed, July 17, 1961, he said, "You tell the boys I’m sorry it was the last part of the ninth that I came to know Christ. I wish it had taken place in the first half of the first."

Everyone must deal with the sin in their life. It is imperative for a person to come to Christ for salvation like the story of Ty Cobb. But what about a Christian, and their sin. This text speaks to the subject of a Christian dealing with sin. They must be ones who are:
