For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Sin may be a real struggle for me, and create a great deal of trouble, but it shall not have dominion; it may annoy me, but it shall not rule over me. How can I be sure of this? Simply because it is a promise in the word of God. And this trumps all!
When I give up trying to earn my way and be righteous in my own strength, only then do I find the strength to overcome sin. In Christ, I find that death itself has been defeated. This promise is so powerful that Paul says, what shall we say to these things? If Christ is for us, who can be against us. I am convinced that nothing can seperate us from the love of God.
Thank you Jesus for the victory I get to participate in with you! Victory over death & sin. Give me the faith to trust your promises and sing them over my life to remind myself of the freedom I have in you
My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, o my soul
It is well
With my soul
It is well, it is well with my soul!!!
