Crucified With Him

Still Feeling Blessed

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 6:6,14 KJV

__________________

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh.

Galatians 5:16 RSV

When we gave our lives to Christ we we're crucified with Him.

I always praised God for this, because sin shall not have dominion over us.

Yes, we sin. We are human. No one in this world was or is sinless except Jesus our Lord.

We are to not sin but when we do we are to repent. To ask forgiveness and turn from the sin. We are to satisfy our new nature not our old nature ..when we came to Christ we became new.

Have you noticed a change in you and your life since you came to Christ?

I have and did. The old went, the new came. But there is a war. A war against the flesh, we are to be in the world not of the world.

We are to walk in the Spirit and let God have all we are, all we can do in Him is from Him. He gives us our strength. Oh I would be so lost without Him. I was lost without Him at one time and now I know the trials are heavy because Satan doesn't like it when we grow in our walk with JESUS.

The Battle

Do not let your heart envy sinners, But live in the fear of the LORD always. Surely there is a future, And your hope will not be cut off.

Proverbs 23:17,18 NASB

There is nothing like having hope, without hope we will whither away.

God will not cut off our hope, we are in a battle here on earth, and we fight and God fights with us and for us. So let's keep our hope in Him, let's pray and read the Bible. Satan hates a good Christian, so let's not fear, but fear the Lord. What can man do to us?

Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.

The LORD sustains the humble
but casts the wicked to the ground.

Psalm 147:5,6 NIV

The blood of Jesus wash over me all day. It would be such a different life if people would turn to God & away from sin; unfortunately we are consumed with evil; and in my eyes from reading and watching the news it's getting worse. Thanks for sharing, I always enjoy your posts.

My prayer is the we all come to REALLY know this, not just say we know it. I am prying that for myself, right now. To have that knowledge that transcends all understanding, hmmm, what peace....
