DEAD TO SIN
“What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?” (Romans 6:1-2)
As one who is born again, you no longer have a problem with sin. This is because according to the Bible the old nature of sin has been replaced with a nature of righteousness. Christians who still struggle with sin do so as a result of an identity crisis; they are yet to understand from the God’s Word, who they really are.
The new creation in Christ is dead to sin (Romans 6:2). Being dead to sin simply means, sin has no power over you. Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”
Your understanding of the righteousness of God liberates you from sin consciousness. The Lord Jesus has given us victory over sin, death and the grave! If you ever find you did something wrong, don’t cry, or feel condemned. Rather get on your knees before God; ask Him to forgive you and then receive forgiveness and say to yourself: “I know who I am; I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! I am dead to sin, but alive to God! I walk in righteousness every day!” Praise God!
If you’re not yet born again, all you have to do is believe in Him and confess Him as your Lord to receive eternal life into your spirit, and become a brand new creature in Christ, so that God’s beauty and power can be seen in you.
