GOD IN HIS WISDOM PROVIDED A “DEATH” FOR US ON THE CROSS SO THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE DONE AWAY WITH. FOR THIS REASON, IN CHRIST, WE ARE NO LONGER SLAVES TO SIN. FOR WHEN WE WERE CRUCIFIED AND DIED WITH CHRIST, WE HAVE BEEN SET FREE FROM SIN. FOR ANYONE WHO HAS DIED HAS BEEN FREED FROM SIN!
(Rom 6:6-7) “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.” (note: the word “Sin” in this verse is a noun and not verb)
ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING WE NEED TO REALIZE IS THE FACT THAT WHEN WE WERE CRUCIFIED AND DIED WITH CHRIST, WE WERE ALSO RAISED WITH HIM AND NOW POSITIONAL SEATED WITH HIM IN THE HEAVENLY REALM.
(Ephesians 2:6-7) And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
