Sin’s power broken under Grace!
Scripture reading for June 20th: Romans 6, Psalm 123, Proverbs 30
Key Scriptures: Romans 6:12-14 “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.”
Paul instructed the Romans in simple truth. Living under the Law stirs up desires to break it. In giving ourselves to Jesus Christ, who perfectly kept God’s Law, we receive forgiveness of sins by His Grace. We are free then to present ourselves and the members of our body to God to be used by Him for righteous purposes. Sin loses its power over us because we have received grace. Sin’s power through the law is broken and we are free to serve God!
Faith Confession: Sin’s power over me is broken through faith in Jesus Christ and receiving grace as a gift. I serve God in freedom and freely offer my body to Him as a living sacrifice. (Faith action: Apply this truth to any besetting sin in your life today, declaring sin’s power broken!)
Proverbs 30:5 “Every Word of God proves true’ He is a shield to those who take refuge in Him.”
