THE OLD MAN WAS CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST!
Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin (Romans 6:6).
When Jesus Christ died on the cross, the old man which represents the nature of sin was also crucified on the cross and died with Him. That old man was the nature of the flesh and sin that actually put us in bondage. Through the death of Jesus Christ, the nature of the flesh and sin was completely destroyed; thereby obtaining our victory in Christ Jesus. No wonder the Bible says that sin shall not have dominion over you (Romans 6:7). Of course, every Christian had been crucified with Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary.
As a Christian, sin is inconsistent with your new nature because you have put on the nature of Jesus Christ and His righteousness. As a result of your new nature in Christ Jesus, the nature and habit of sin is completely dead in your life. That is why the Bible tells us in 1 John 3:9, “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.” A Christian is never subject to the nature of sin because of Jesus Christ’s death and resurrection which he represents.
A Christian is a new creation, with a new nature, character, righteousness of Jesus Christ and carries the seed of God in him. Of course, because of the seed and nature of God he carries, he is not comfortable by cultivating the habit and nature of sin. But the man who is not born again is comfortable by cultivating the habit and nature of sin. Such a person takes sin as a lifestyle by dwelling and living in it without any form of remorse. Therefore, an unbeliever is subject to sin and alive in its nature.
Daily Tip: A Christian has crucified the old man with Jesus Christ and put on the new nature and righteousness of Christ in him. Therefore, he carries the seed of God in him. Shalom!
Golden Text: And that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness (Ephesians 4:24).
