In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6: 11-14 [NIV]

We face a constant battle over where our allegiance lies. Although we are dead to sin and alive to God, we sometimes don’t believe that and because we don’t believe it we fail to resist sin and end up being obedient to sin and disobedient to God. When talking about building up treasures in Heaven, Jesus said we can’t serve two masters (God and Money).

 

Action: Who are you obedient to? Is there something that is “master” of your life in place of God, today? Turn around and face the right direction.

 

Lord, help me to be obedient to you – keep me from being a slave to sin. I offer myself to you and I thank you for your amazing grace, Amen.
