Sunday Service Sneak Peek for January 20, 2019 – 1 Corinthians 12:7

We’ll explore that truth Sunday, January 20th at 9 AM during worship!

Victory Vitamin Blog – Romans 6:6

“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” 

-Romans 6:6 NIV

From what I understand, people who smoke don’t really enjoy the way it controls their lives.   I can’t imagine an alcoholic enjoys being enslaved to alcohol.  There are any number of things that can control us, but we were all under the control of sin.  That’s not the case anymore.  In baptism, we are set free from our slavery to sin.  It doesn’t mean we’re going to be perfect, but the Holy Spirit, given to us in baptism empowers us to say “no” to sinful stupidity.  Again, we won’t be perfect, but we can say “no”.  Take advantage of the power given to you by God.  Exercise the self-control given to you by God.  You won’t be perfect, but strive to be better.  You are forgiven and through faith in Jesus you will live forever in heaven.  You’re not striving to be better so you can get into heaven.  You’re striving to be better to show your thankfulness to God for getting you into heaven.  You’re not a slave to sin any longer.  It doesn’t control you, the Holy Spirit does.  Live your life not to indulge the sinful nature, but to glorify the God who has saved you.  Here’s to new beginnings in Christ!
