Romans 6:11 – In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin

Romans 6:11 – In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin

In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. – Romans 6:11 (NIV)

Today’s commentary by Dave Whitehead, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

The gospel tells us that our life in Christ is so rich that the new life deadens our desire for sin. So our emphasis is not saying no to our desires, but saying yes to Jesus. As we stop fixating on all of the things that we are doing wrong and begin to renew our minds with the kind of life the Christ offers we will find a supernatural ability to live freely before God. Christ IN you brings strength that you cannot produce on your own. He is the only one who can defeat the sin patterns in our lives.
