Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, Because we know that Christ (the Anointed One), being once raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has power over Him.
For by the death He died, He died to sin [ending His relation to it] once for all; and the life that He lives, He is living to God [in unbroken fellowship with Him].
Even so consider yourselves also dead to sin and your relation to it broken, but alive to God [living in unbroken fellowship with Him] in Christ Jesus.
Let not sin therefore rule as king in your mortal (short-lived, perishable) bodies, to make you yield to its cravings and be subject to its lusts and evil passions.
Do not continue offering or yielding your bodily members [and faculties] to sin as instruments (tools) of wickedness. But offer and yield yourselves to God as though you have been raised from the dead to [perpetual] life, and your bodily members [and faculties] to God, presenting them as implements of righteousness. For sin shall not [any longer] exert dominion over you, since now you are not under Law [as slaves], but under grace [as subjects of God’s favor and mercy]. (Romans 6:8-14 AMP)
I am no longer subject to sin and its consequences for Jesus has ransomed me, therefore…
Your life is a journey you must travel with a deep consciousness of God. It cost God plenty to get you out of that dead-end, empty-headed life you grew up in. He paid with Christ’s sacred blood, you know. He died like an unblemished, sacrificial lamb. And this was no afterthought. Even though it has only lately—at the end of the ages—become public knowledge, God always knew he was going to do this for you. It’s because of this sacrificed Messiah, whom God then raised from the dead and glorified, that you trust God, that you know you have a future in God. (1 Peter 1:18-21 MSG)
I am a new creation! Given a second chance! And decide by the grace of God in Christ Jesus, that I won’t live my life unworthy of Christ sacrifice ever more.
How about you? Would you like to believe and be saved? Do you want to REALLY ALIVE, not just barely exist?
I invite you to pray this prayer: Lord Jesus, i am a sinner, i know I’m not worthy for Your sacrifice, and I cannot save myself, i need You. Come Lord Jesus, into my heart, be my only Lord and Savior. I receive Your grace and Salvation in Your Name. Amen
If you truly from your heart pray this prayer, congrats! Your life is with Him now, and you definitely have a future in God!
Thank You Jesus, where would I be if not for Your grace…
