STAND UNDER GRACE

STAND UNDER GRACE

Romans 6:14 (NKJV) For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

I love this verse!  It is so positive and right to the point.  Sin shall not have dominion over me.  Not maybe.  Not we will see.  Sin shall not have dominion over me!  On the cross, our Jesus defeated the devil and has given us the victory.  On the cross, my sins were laid on Him and now I am free of sin.

Many believe when you say that, it gives people a freedom to sin, but that is so far from the truth.  You see, when we understand that we are saved by grace and there was nothing we could do, and that it was all the work of Jesus and our heavenly Father, it gives us the empowerment to overcome sin.

I have found that as I confess what Jesus has already done for me, it breaks the enemy’s stronghold over me.  (I can find these truths in the letters written to the church).

There is nothing greater than to know that the Greater One lives in us and He empowers us to be world overcomers.  Remember, the Word says in 1 John 4:4, “…He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.”  It also says in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

So today, do not dwell on your shortcomings.  We all have plenty of them.  Instead, dwell on Jesus!  See Him as living inside of you.  You are a pure and clean vessel, because sin shall not have dominion over you.  You are not under law, but under grace.  Thank God for the blood that washes you white as snow!

Confession: Today, I declare that I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.  I declare that the Greater One lives in me, and He empowers me to overcome the dictates of the flesh.
