Romans 6:6-7 (NET)  We know that our old man was crucified with him so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. (For someone who has died has been freed from sin.)

Remi loved the Lord and even her friends and enemies knew it,  but Remi knew she was still living under the control of the flesh. From time to time,  she found herself falling into certain sins that made her feel she was hopeless in her walk with the Lord.

Each time she read verses like this,  she didn’t understand them and wondered if they applied to her. Her experience was that her sinful flesh was still very much alive.

The secret to walking free above the power of sin is spiritual knowledge and understanding. Jesus says you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free (see John 8:32).

In today’s Bible verses,  we see a gospel truth that is the secret of freedom from the dominance of sin in the life of the believer.

This truth is that we have been crucified with Christ so that the body of sin would no longer dominate us. Any believer that has not caught this revelation will still struggle with the dominance of sin.

The righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith (see Romans 1:17). This means it is revealed when you believe what God says concerning who you are and what has happened to you. You have to believe that you have been crucified with Christ. Your old life and identity are dead. You are now a member of Christ’s body. You are not the same old you that used to be a slave to sin. You are now truly righteous and holy and have received a new nature that loves righteousness and hates iniquity.

As you believe these truths and let them shape your expectations in life,  you will find that the righteousness of God will be revealed in you. You will discover that the appetite for sin will dry up.

Go into today believing and confessing that you have been crucified with Christ and the body of sin no longer controls you.

Say this confession: “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me.”(Galatians 2:20).
