Join us this Friday March 26th as we move from the command for purity in our lives, to the delight that comes when we obey. Could it be that there is greater joy in keeping from sexual sin outside of God’s plan than from falling into it? Could it be that the thrill of the moment is far less than the joy – the downright delight – in obedience? If this is true, and it is, how does that look in our lives? Come join us as we dig into Romans 6:6-14 to find out:
We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
