Today's Verse : Romans 6:11

In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. — Romans 6:11 

Thought

Just as Jesus died to sin, we also died to sin. But, simply putting aside sin isn't going to keep sin away from us. We must embrace Jesus' new life for us every day, with our hearts open to the Lord's exciting will for us. Let's let what is dead remain buried and in the past. Let's live passionately for God with our eyes focused on Jesus and his future for us.

Prayer

Sovereign Lord and Loving Father, I want the past life of sin to remain buried and dead. Please empower me to vibrant life that is full of your Spirit and always open to your leading. Please make your presence and your will plain to me. In Jesus' name I ask it. Amen.

  1. We died with Christ to sin on the cross. The life we now live we are to live unto Him who died for us. As it were, we are to allow Christ to live in and through us. That which Christ has worketh for us in the spirit we are to enforce on a daily basis. We are not to yield our members to sin in any form or shape. We are to have no life (enablement, consciousness, etc.) as it relates to sin. Rather our consciousness, our being, our enablement, our creativity, our engagement should be to righteousness. 'Causing the Son to be lifted up in, over, and through our lives. Be exalted Lord Jesus. Reign in and through me.
