Having been set free from the bondage of sin, we are no longer to walk in it. Our former self has been crucified with Christ so that the body of sin might be destroyed. However, we often allow a part of the old man to stick around. We tell ourselves that it isn’t that bad or that we have it under control; we try to train it like it’s our little pet.
The reality is there is no part of sin that is good, sin wants to enslave and oppress you. Jesus died so that sin might be destroyed in our lives and we would be set free from it. As followers of Christ, we need to see to it that we are putting sin to death in all areas of our lives. Yes, there will still be times when we fall into sin, but when we do we are to pick ourselves up and continue to press on towards Christ. The ways of sin are enticing, but the more we walk in the freedom of Jesus, the more that body of sin is done away with.
For the King,
Pastor Daniel Batistelli
