Dying To Sin.........
Many people were made sinners through disobedience of one man 'Adam', but! through the obedience of one man 'Jesus' many people will be made righteous.
So when one man sinned all mankind became condemned, but because of one man who obeyed now we have the right to come out of the sinful desires.
With sin there was no way that we could reach God unless there was a way, and the law did not have that way, the law showed to us what we should not do and what we should do.
There was no grace in the law so there was no way for us to get to God, but because of one man there became the way, the way that became open to all of the sinners.
So what is the answer do we keep on sinning then one day we will die to it?
Or do we go out looking to the way that has been made for us to be free from sin?
God had mercy on the people as they were so far away from Him, He knew that something had to be done to bring His people back in line to give them the chance that they needed to get out of the sinful ways that they were in.
God knew the law was not enough there had to be something more, something that would show to the people that God was their God and that he loved them so much, so He gave His One and only Son to them, His Son would show them how God wanted them to live, he would tell about the good things that God had for them, He would heal them from all kinds of illnesses, He would tell of the love that God had for them, and He would take all their sins upon Himself, He would go to the cross and die for them, to show them the love that God has for them.
Dying to Sin........ this is not an easy thing to do as sin seems to be everywhere all around us, sin is when we disobey what God has said we are not to do and we do it, or we say no to when we know we aught to do many things as God wants from us.
Yes we have the choice to do or not to do God's ways that he has for us, but to continue in sinning that is not the way to go, so don't let sin rule over your life.
Jesus rose from the dead to give to us eternal life and He showed us the way back to God the Father.
So. don't think of yourself as being dead in sin, but alive to God by Christ Jesus.
Say to yourself everyday that sin cannot rule over me as I am set free from all sin, and I am not under the law, because I am under God's gracious love!
