Dead To Sin

Romans 6:6

We know that our old (unrenewed) self was nailed to the cross with Him in order that [our] body [which is the instrument] of sin might be made ineffective and inactive for evil, that we might no longer be the slaves of sin.

Once you receive Christ as your Savior the old sinful nature within has been done away with as your spirit man is made new. There is as the above scripture reveals, an old unrenewed nature that has to do with the soul (mind, will, and emotions), that James 1:21 tells us must be saved (delivered) from the old nature by receiving with meekness the implanted Word of God.

It is this renewal of the mind that helps us to develop our spirit man, and in doing so this new man leads you in victory over the flesh. Walk in the spirit, dominated by your spirit man within, and you will not fulfill the desires of the flesh. For the mind to be renewed you must receive the Word with meekness (complete humility). Simply put, you don’t question, argue with, nor doubt God’s Word.

This means you simply believe what it says and act upon it. As James chapter one goes on to tell us, one who is a hearer of the Word but not a doer deceives themselves. But a doer of the Word will be blessed in what they do. One’s mind is not fully renewed until they begin to act upon the Word of God. As you do, you learn to walk in the spirit, allowing your spirit man to dominate, and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh.

Living Life Through Jesus

1 John 4:9

By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him.

The word “live” in this verse is defined as, “to enjoy true life”. There is only one way you can enjoy true life. You must live through Jesus, not through the old you. Jesus is our example. To live through Him one must learn to walk in the love of God. Jesus told us in His Word that we now have a new commandment to follow. We are to love one another as He has loved us.

When we walk in love we follow His example and are therefore living our life through Jesus. Scripture teaches us that faith works through love. Jesus lived a life of faith because Jesus lived a life of love. To walk in the love of God is a choice we make, and it takes practice. It is something we choose to do. To walk in the love of God we must also spend time with love Himself, our God. 1 John 4:16 tells us God is love, and when you fellowship with God He rubs off on you.

The love of God is in our new recreated spirit. Walking in love is choosing to walk in the new you, instead of the old fleshly outer man. To walk in the love of God simply means you treat other people the way you want to be treated, no matter how they treat you. Make the choice to walk in love, and to fellowship with God, and you will live your life through Jesus Christ. In doing so we can enjoy “true life”, the kind of life Jesus lived.

Stop Owning What Is Not Yours

Romans 8:17

and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.

Did you know once you are born again you are an heir of God and a joint heir with Jesus? What does this mean exactly? Well it means you now have ownership to all that God has ownership of. This is important to understand because far to many believers are still being deceived in taking ownership of something that does not belong to them instead of taking ownership of what does. Let me explain.

Anything that the Bible says we are redeemed and liberated from is no longer something we should take ownership of. Satan is a deceiver, and what he continually tries to do is to get believers to accept ownership of what actually belongs to him and not to us. The things that do not belong to God we need to stop falling for the deception of owning as ours, and the things that do belong to God we need to realize that is what we now have ownership of.

For example when a believer refers to a sickness, or any part of the curse that came as a result man’s sin as theirs, they are allowing those things to manifest in their life. When someone says, “My diabetes, my cancer, I’m broke, I’m afraid, I’m worthless, etc”, they are taking ownership of something that is not God’s and therefore not theirs. Stop taking ownership through your words of that which does not belong to God. Instead, ask yourself, “Does this belong to God?” If it doesn’t don’t accept it as yours. Instead claim what is yours based on what God does own. It will change your life.

God Working In Us

Hebrews 13:21

…working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

By our submission to Jesus Christ our heavenly Father is able to work in us to do that which is pleasing in His sight. Our transformation does not take place by our ability, but God’s ability through our availability. For this to happen we must present our bodies as a living sacrifice unto God. To do so we have to redeem our time, giving attention to our spiritual growth by going to the Word of God. As we do we need to renew our minds to who we now are in Christ.

The renewal of the mind involves four things. 1. Reading the Word of God, and to truly read the Word we must hear what the Lord is saying to us. 2. Meditating on God’s Word. Taking the time to ponder what is being said and how it applies to you. 3. Studying God’s Word. We need to become good students of the Word so that we are rightly dividing the Word of truth. 4. Acting upon God’s Word. One’s mind is not fully renewed without acting upon what we see in the Word of God.

When we are born again that is where the work of God in us begins. When Lazarus was raised from the dead Jesus told His disciples to go and take the grave clothes off of him. Like Lazarus we have come out of the grave, and now through us presenting our bodies as a living sacrifice unto God and having our minds renewed to God’s Word, He can complete His work in us by taking off the grave clothes, the old way of living.
