Freed From Sin

by Meg Pittman
Continuing with the idea of shedding sin and pressing forward, Romans 6 describes how we have new life and freedom through Christ’s death.

“…just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life…because anyone who has died has been freed from sin… count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus…” (pieces of Romans 6:4-11)

We have the ability to shed the sin that so easily entangles because Christ has overcome death. When we crucify our old self, we inherit the authority and power to cast off Satan’s hold on our lives. We are new creations. Sin is no longer our master. We have the opportunity to commune with Christ and love Him with our lives because our new master is grace. Each day is an Easter celebration of our new life through Christ’s resurrection. Our freedom was bought at a high price and, being conscious of His sacrifice, we have no choice but to embrace and appreciate that gift.

Jesus Christ, thank you for your sacrifice and eternal love; I can’t comprehend your amazing grace. You came to earth to give me life, and life to the full. I pray that I can start to understand what that means and that my life would glorify you. Thank you for conquering sin and empowering me with the Holy Spirit. I am no longer a slave to sin, and I pray that you would give me the strength and vision to live in your victory. I am more than a conqueror, and I promise to live in the freedom and joy of your grace. Your sacrifice on the cross enables me to love you with a righteous, vibrant, intimate love. Muchisimas gracias, mi querido Padre.
