A CHRISTIAN IS DEAD TO SIN!
What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? (Romans 6:1-2).
A Christian is dead to sin and its power because he is born of God; ruled and controlled by the Holy Spirit. According to the Scriptures, a Christian’s righteousness is replaced by the righteousness of Jesus Christ. A Christian that is still struggling with sin nature fails to understand the truth of God’s Word. When the Bible says that you are dead to sin; it therefore means that the power of sin nature over your life had been destroyed. Jesus Christ destroyed the power of sin and death over the life of a Christian.
Anyone who is dead physically is completely free from natural instincts and forces of life. In the same way, a Christian is dead to the nature of sin and its dominion. That is why the Scripture says, “For he who has died has been freed from sin” (Romans 6:7). It is impossible for a Christian who has the righteousness of Christ Jesus to as well cultivate the nature of sin. Your body is the temple of God and do not defy it. A Christian is more than a conqueror over the nature of sin and death (8:37).
A Christian should understand the fact that the nature of sin had been rendered powerless over him. Therefore, sin must not have dominion over you no matter the situation. Jesus Christ died for your sake so that you might live and have dominion over the nature of sin and death. You have the nature of God and at the same time a slave of righteousness in Christ Jesus. The life of a Christian had been sealed for greatness and victorious living.
Daily Tip: A Christian is dead to the nature of sin but alive to God through the power of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, live a life of victory and dominion over sin and death. Shalom!
Golden Text: Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God (1 John 3:9).
