The fear of sin has stopped so many from becoming successful in life. Some people think that sin can stop their success and progress in life. That depends on you and what you believe in and as a Christian you shouldn't be thinking this way. This is not the way of God rather it's the mindset of the devil working in you. Your sins have been paid for through the death of Jesus Christ, then how come can it stop your success and progress in life?

This is what the book of Colossians 1:21 was talking about that we have reconciled with God through Jesus Christ and we are no longer separated from him. As long as this has been done, your debts and sins have been paid for and it can no longer stop your success and progress in life. It will only do so if you keep reminding the devil that you are a sinner and not worthy of God's blessings.
Whenever you feel you have sinned against God, take forgiveness and move on. Don't dwell in that sin as a reminder of your weak faith, rather live above it because he has given you the authority to live above sin. God mercies are upon your life and that's why your sins cannot stop you from succeeding in making progress in life.

Even before the death of Jesus, he still forgives without you asking; take the book of Isaiah 1:18 for instance which says; “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins are as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool.” When Jesus hasn't come to take out our sins, he still wants you to live above sin.
This is why your sins cannot stop your success and progress in life. Have this consciousness that you have dominion above sin and you will be free from it. However, mind you that, whatever you sow you shall reap but your sins won't stop your success or progress in life.

Romans 5:10 says; “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” This passage is saying that you are saved by the life of Jesus Christ and no sin can stop you from experiencing God's blessings. This is why your sins cannot stop your success and progress in life.
