Why God Doesn’t Remove Our Sin

Now these are the nations that the Lord left, to test Israel by them, that is, all in Israel who had not experienced all the wars in Canaan. It was only in order that the generations of the people of Israel might know war, to teach war to those who had not known it before.

Judges 3:1-2  (ESV)
 Why God Doesn’t Remove our Sin

I appreciate  J.D. Greear’s perspective on this nagging question that many of us have. If God is omnipotent as most of us confess why doesn’t he use his power to instantly remove our sin? Greear focuses his answer on Israel’s constant battle with neighboring enemies and the reason God gives them in Judges 3:1-2.

God wanted to give Israel the land of Canaan. But apparently, he wanted to do it through struggle. So he continued to test them, to see if they would believe him, to teach them to trust him in their fight. He does the same with us, though (as Paul reminds us) our battle isn’t against flesh and blood, but against spiritual powers. Why doesn’t God remove our struggles when we become Christians? Because he wants us to keep relying on his grace, not on our flesh. As Paul said, some of the weaknesses and trials in our lives are there—by design—to keep us humble
