1 Corinthians 6:20 (NET)
For you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.
When Dare realized what it really meant to be a believer in the Lord Jesus, his slavery to sin was broken.
He had attended church all his life, but he knew he was still a slave to sin. When for the first time he learned that believing in the Lord Jesus meant accepting Christ Jesus as his Lord, he understood that this meant that his life now belonged to Christ and he could no longer live the way he liked but now had to submit to the will of Christ. When he realized and understood this, he could now receive power from the Holy Spirit. This power enabled him to overcome the dominion of sin in his life.
He also observed that because of this power, he was no more afraid of the devil and his demons. He now had the authority to withstand the forces of darkness and overcome.
Being a believer doesn’t just mean accepting that Jesus is Lord, it means receiving His Lordship over your life. When this happens, the Holy Spirit can now empower you to live above the power of the flesh.
It is only by the Holy Spirit that we can put to death the works of the flesh (see Rom 8:13) and this can only happen when we have truly accepted the Lordship of Jesus over our lives.
Go into today remembering that the degree to which you are submitted to the Lord is the degree to which you will have spiritual authority. It is only those who submit to the LORD that will be able to resist the devil and he will flee from them (see James 4:7).
