Don’t Let Sin Reign

 

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts” (Romans 6:12 NKJV). Okay, we know we are dead to sin and alive to God. But what about those nagging little sins that seem to so easily beset us (Hebrews 12:10). Paul says here in this verse to not let them reign in you. You have a choice. It’s like a dieter having a chocolate chip cookie on a plate in front of him. You have the choice to take it or not. Are you going to obey the lust for a cookie or not. You have a new spirit, a new nature, you’re a new man. But the body hasn’t always gotten with the program. Don’t let these things reign in your life. There can only be one King and that is Jesus. Let Him reign and rule over your life. Lay aside the weight of these things and run the race set before you. Stay in the Word and rest in the grace of God knowing you are the righteousness of God. No matter what, Jesus is on your side. Don’t just sweep a problem under the rug. Deal with it through the Word and prayer. Take your cares to Jesus because He cares for you.
