    Sin quotes by:    

If we persist in holding on to something which God wants us to relinquish, sin shall have dominion over us, and our reckoning shall be futile.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Overcoming sin, blessed though it surely is, is but the bare minimum of a believers experience. There is nothing astonishing in it. Not to overcome sin is what ought to astonish us.

    Author: Watchman Nee

To be freed from sin is not a difficult task when viewed in the light of the finished, perfect and complete salvation of God. A believer must proceed to learn the more advanced and perhaps more formidable and deeper lesson of abhorring his life.

    Author: Watchman Nee

On the other hand, were we to permit to remain even the tiniest little sin which we know our conscience has condemned, we instantly would lose that perfect fellowship with God.

    Author: Watchman Nee

The moment we notice our voice has turned harsh, we must stop instantly. If we are reluctant to say to our brethren, "I am wrong," then our spirit remains engulfed in its sin.

    Author: Watchman Nee

God's people often erroneously think that they need a contrite spirit only at the time they repent and believe in the Lord or whenever they subsequently fall into sin. We should know, however, that God wishes us to keep our spirit in a state of contrition at all times. We ought never sin; yet we always should have sorrow for sin. The presence of God is felt in such a spirit.

    Author: Watchman Nee

If a child of God cherishes sin in his heart he is lending his mind to satanic spirits for their use.

    Author: Watchman Nee

Sin aims always at the utmost; every time it rises up to tempt or entice, if it has its own way it will go out to the utmost sin in that kind. Every unclean thought or glance would be adultery if it could, every thought of unbelief would be atheism if allowed to develop. Every rise of lust, if it has its way reaches the height of villainy; it is like the grave that is never satisfied. The deceitfulness of sin is seen in that it is modest in its first proposals but when it prevails it hardens mens' hearts, and brings them to ruin.

    Author: John Owen

Let no man think to kill sin with few, easy, or gentle strokes. He who hath once smitten a serpent, if he follow not on his blow until it be slain, may repent that ever he began the quarrel. And so he who undertakes to deal with sin, and pursues it not constantly to the death.

    Author: John Owen

Do you mortify? Do you make it your daily work? Be always at it whilst you live; cease not a day from this work; be killing sin or it will be killing you.

    Author: John Owen

The custom of sinning takes away the sense of it, the course of the world takes away the shame of it.

    Author: John Owen

The vigor and power and comfort of our spiritual life depends on our mortification of deeds of the flesh.

    Author: John Owen
