QT – Romans 6

Vs. 11, “In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.”  Being a believer is a matter of life or death.  We were once born into sin and death, but are now born  again into a whole new world!  A world where there are no more chains pulling us down into the pit of life.  Just like Jesus’ death, our old lives were nailed to the cross.  Satan desires to blind our eyes to the truth and make us believe in our sin we are justified (vs. 1)

Regarding application…Free From Sin.  Vs. 7, “because anyone who has died has been set free from sin.”  Picture yourself thrown into prison because of something you did wrong.  You spend years languishing and suffering.  It is dark, it is scary, and there are many lonely days…even though there are other prisoners all around you.  But all of the sudden, the door swings open and a hand reaches out for you to tell you that you are now free.  Your actions are forgiven and you can now come out into a world of light.  Most of us would logically jump at such an opportunity, yet there are so many who are now used to living in the prison of life.  The very thought of leaving the comfortableness of the darkness is too scary.  But you are free…Thank God almighty we are free!  Brothers & sisters, it’s time to let go of the bondage of sin and take hold of being alive in Christ!
