I AM dead to sin and alive to God in Christ
Romans 6:1-11 “Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord”
When I accepted Jesus Christ into my life as my personal Savior not only was I forgiven of sin, but I made him Lord over my life. I gave him full control and reign. As a daughter of the King that means I now have to walk in the image of my father and though his grace is sufficient for me, but it doesn’t give me the right to take advantage of it nor give me the right to do what I want to do. Every day I have to continue to die to myself (my flesh), I have to turn over my will to his. There is a war going on within me between my flesh and my spirit and the one I continue to strengthen will overcome and win. Even in times when I become weak the strength of the Lord sustains me to do his will. We think it’s sooo hard to serve him, but it’s much harder to recover when we continue in sin. As a reflection of the King as he is than so am I. I am alive and I am free. Though I am not all the way there yet and eventhough I struggle and I make mistakes I don’t stay where I am. Every day I continue to strive to be the image of my father because I AM the daughter of the King.
