Are You A Slave To Sin?

Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.  – Romans 6:6 (NKJV)

We are no longer slaves of sin not because we do not sin any more.  As long as we are in these mortal bodies, we will mess up, we will make mistakes, we will violate the Word of God.

However, we are no longer sinners.  When we accepted Christ, we became righteous through Jesus’ blood.

No matter how much we sin, we will never lose our salvation through bad works.  Why?  Because we never earned it through good works.  Jesus did.

We don’t conquer the sin in our lives by focusing on not sinning.  We conquer it by looking to Jesus and what He has done for us.

Whatever we focus on is where our minds will go.  If we focus on not sinning, we will sin more.  If we focus on Jesus, we will become more like Him.
