Do Not Resuscitate

I must stop resuscitating sin already declared dead. Too often I find myself trying to keep alive something God sentenced to death. Romans 6:11 urges: “count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. 

In Christ, the power of sin is broken. It can’t condemn or dominate anymore. It only has the control we give it. Your struggle may be with over-reacting, over-indulging, over-spending. You may be overwhelmed with fear, self-pity, worry, bitterness, or lust. You might allow some habit, hunger for approval, root of pride, or secret sin to stay alive.

Count yourself dead to that.
