Count Yourself Dead to Sin

Do you have to sin every day until you die? The Scripture says, No.

“Count yourselves dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus” (Romans 6:11).

A truly converted Christian is as dead to sin as a dead body is to the world. Christ totally destroys the “old man”–or sinful nature–in a converted person.

Just as a husband willingly fixes his heart on his wife, a Christian willingly fixes his heart on Jesus. He has no interest in another. Any sin, small or great, repulses him. How could he sin against Jesus, whom he loves with all of his heart?

You have the ability to make this choice–and, to be saved, you must. So will you?
