Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Christians seem to always want to make excuses as to why we sin. We will never admit that our old nature has been crucified or that we are new creatures. We will not agree that we are freed from sin but rather say that can’t be true, even if the Bible says it, because we need an excuse for our sin!
We are dead to sin. We have been crucified and not just positionally. We are freed to live the live of holiness that God has called us to live. The only reason that we do not is because we will not reckon it to be so. Act like it is true and step out on it!
We know that we are dead. We are to reckon it to be so! We are to just get up and act like the truth is true. If it is then we can live it! We are freed to live a holy life!
