Consider Yourself Dead

Believers give sin too much credit; in fact, most are too sin conscious. As believers we should be Jesus-conscious because He set us free from the law of sin and death. Because of His sacrifice on our behalf, we have the ability to be out of sins’ reach. Yes, it’s possible. Paul puts it this way in Romans 6:11, NIV – “So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.” Did you catch the key in this verse? Consider yourself DEAD to the power of sin. Later in Paul tells us that you and I HAVE the mind of Christ. Jesus isn’t dwelling on sin because He conquered it once and for all. He isn’t concerned about it anymore because it is no longer a factor. He was victorious over sin. Don’t allow thoughts that are contrary to God’s work in you. Don’t take ownership of what the enemy tries to plant in your thinking. Paul Ellis says “don’t react, don’t dialogue; don’t wrestle or engage with those thoughts.” Why? Because you’re dead to sin in any form. Live from this place of victory.
