Romans 6:11-12

Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts.

Encouraging Words...

Sin's power in my life is not absolute. Through Christ I can reject sin and live a victorious life for God. I am not totally depraved, rather I am a diamond created in the image of God covered with mud. As I follow Him He washes off that mud, polishes me, and helps me to sparkle. Since Christ was able to live His human life with His human will aligned with God's and therefore sinless, then my living in Him gives me the ability to reject sin as well. Glory be to God!
