- If I don't agressively fight sin that crops up in my life, it will continue to spread and take over.
- Life-altering, radical cleansing is called for.
- God needs me to live on a higher standard--His standard.
Romans 6 is very clear about the freedom from sin that is ours in Christ. Throughout the chapter are clear declarations of our freedom:
- "We died to sin" (2)
- "count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus" (11)
- "do not let sin reign in your mortal body" (12) -- (Assumption: this is possible)
- "sin shall not be your master" (14)
- "you used to be slaves to sin" (17)
- "You have been set free from sin" (18, 22)
