Under Gods Command
Dead to sin, Alive in Christ

Romans 6:12 (11) In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. (12)Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.

How can we keep this command to not let sin reign over us, to not give in to its desires? We can take the following steps:

(1) Identify our personal weaknesses,
(2) Recognize the things that tempt us,
(3) Stay away from sources of temptation,
(4) Practice self-restraint,
(5) Lean on God’s strength and grace.

Lets Bring it Home: The first two requires us to make a list. The third one requires us to stay away. The fourth is training, and the fourth is the answer for all four. Are we really on God’s strength and grace?
