Under Gods Command

 Dead to sin, Alive in Christ

Romans 6:8-11 Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.  For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him.  The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. 

11) In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

 “Count yourselves dead to sin” means that we should regard our old sinful nature as dead and unresponsive to sin.  Because of our union and identification with Christ, we are no longer obligated to carry out those old motives, desires, and goals. So let us consider ourselves to be what God has in fact made us.

Lets Bring it Home:  We have a new start, and the Holy Spirit will help us become in our daily experience what Christ has declared us to be.
