Unplugged From Sin – Romans 6:6

unplugged“We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives.” (Romans 6:6, NLT).

When you are joined with Christ, your old source of power, sin, gets unplugged and you plug into a new source of power, the Holy Spirit.

When you are “crucified with Christ”, you live your present new life with Christ in anticipation of the day when you will live with Him forever: “So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus” (vs. 11).

The Apostle Paul tells us we that sin no longer controls us: “Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires. Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin” (vs. 12-13).

Sin doesn’t have any power over you because it’s no longer your power source. You have power over sin because you have a new power source.

When you get plugged into Jesus, you unplug from sin!
