Always has and Always will be an Over-comer
Romans 6:11 – So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.
I am currently doing a study on the book of Romans. Every chapter is eye-opening: it reveals the depth of Christ’s love and it shows me who I am in Christ, like the mirror it is. In Chapter 6, I remember jotting down, that, when Christians are faced with an option to sin or not to sin, they do not sin. That is because as believers, not sinning has become our default setting. However, this does not mean we may not make mistakes, but we need to be conscious of the fact that it’s a training process, and you can make mistakes in training, but that does not disqualify you from the training exercise, but just means you need more training.
The key scripture explains that we are dead to sin. It goes further to say that now we are able to live for the Glory of God. This simply means that I have power and dominion over sin. Now, I look at sin from a point of victory. As believers, we are no longer subject to sin because of the price Jesus paid. So wherever you are, you can live above that addiction and you can live above fear. Why? Because you are dead to sin! We are now able to live to glorify the Father.
Ephesians 2:10 says something similar. It says that “…
we are God’s master piece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
This means that there’s no other time that God can be pleased with you but now. With the death, burial and resurrection of his son, He is pleased with you. And fortunately, now you have the power over sin. Hallelujah to the king who has given us victory over sin and death.
Father thank you because sin has no dominion over me
