08/29/07 - Count Yourself Dead

Romans 6:11-14
11In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.

13Do not offer the parts of your body to sin, as instruments of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God, as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer the parts of your body to him as instruments of righteousness.

14For sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace.

Today count yourself dead to sin. Sin has no authority over you. Yes, it does have power and lure, but no authority! You do not have to obey the call to sin. It is not your boss!

Offer your body as instruments, or in the Greek the word is: weapons of righteousness. Win people over to Christ, by your actions!
