No Longer A Salve To Sin

What's On My Heart Today... "No Longer A Salve To Sin"

"We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. Romans 6:6

Do you struggle with feeling unworthy? Maybe you have habits in your life that you can't lay down? Habits have many faces, yet in reality, much of it is sin. Anything that is put before God is sin. The Apostle Paul tells us that our old sinful nature was crucified with Christ. As Christians, we have been freed not only from the penalty of sin, but also the power that it holds over our life. So why do we still struggle with sin? Paul didn't say that we would no longer be tempted with sin in our lives. He said that sin no longer had power over us. That's a huge gift handed into our keeping. That also means that we have no excuse for our sinful behavior. Throughout this day there will be numerous occasions where you will have to choose whether to do what is sinful, or what is righteous. Remind yourself that it was our sins that nailed Jesus to the cross! Today, God would say to you...

"You are no longer a slave to sin"
