Romans 6:11 KJV
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
A man driving stopped to pick up a female hitchhiker who he felt was in need of a ride. Having noted her extreme modesty in dressing, he dismissed any fear of temptation. In a twist, it turned out that this lady was actually a seductress in disguise, and soon she began to touch him. Immediately, the man began to laugh and ominously declared “You’re touching a dead man”. The lady now looked confused, and seeing that the man went on to say “Now I’m taking you to where I died and was buried”, in horror she began to beg, had the car stopped, and jumped out. Unknown to this lady, the man was a pastor on his way to the church where he got saved and baptized, which he now refers to as his burial ground!
Fighting on Satan’s turf and hoping to win is spiritual suicide. He is a master of the fleshly realm and as long as our flesh remains alive and responsive, we are in danger of falling. Our only way out is us dying daily to the flesh through the Word and by the help of the Holy Spirit (See Luke 9:23, Romans 8:13). Our daily confession must become “I am dead to sin and alive unto God”
Friends, we are warned to always be alert to Satan’s deceptions. What may seem harmless or look innocent, might just be the devil’s trap or agent (2 Corinthians 11:14-15). However, just as a dead man doesn’t respond to people, environment or any stimulus, we also must become dead to the flesh and its sinful affections (Galatians 5:24).
Go into today knowing that you’re alive and victorious in Christ and that sin should have no dominion over you (Roman 6:14).
