Romans 6:12-14 (NLT) Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires. 13 Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. Instead, give yourselves completely to God, for you were dead, but now you have new life. So use your whole body as an instrument to do what is right for the glory of God
When Ronke felt a little tired at the office, she would go to Ugo’s office and they would both ‘discuss’ about what is going on in the office; and what is going on in people’s houses. Ugo seemed to know everything about everyone in that office.
After this continued for three weeks, it dawned on Ronke one day that she was now a professional gossip, and yet she knew better than that. She realized that she had been using her mouth as an instrument serving sin. She repented that day.
The reason why many Christians give their bodies to sin is because they enjoy it. It wouldn’t be tempting if it were not enjoyable to the flesh. But since we are not to walk in the flesh but in the spirit, it is our responsibility to remind our minds that we are dead to sin but alive to righteousness.
The mind needs constant reminders because it has been trained to walk in the flesh since you were born. But you are now born again, so your mind needs to be reminded to walk in your new nature.
Go into today reminding yourself that you are now a new creature with a new nature. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you walk in your new nature.
Prayer confession: I am dead to sin but alive towards God. I am walking in the divine nature: I am walking above greed, fear, pride, and all forms of lust, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
