Let Not Sin Reign In Your Mortal Body


Romans 6:12-13: “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”


Let not sin reign in your mortal body:
1.  Sin is a power in people that influences and brings about effects and actions in their lives. The non-Christian has no power over sin and sin reigns in their mortal body as they obey it in its lusts. Sin controls these people. They yield the various parts of their bodies (eyes, ears, mouth, hands, feet, etc.) unto sin seeking pleasure and self-satisfaction but it brings about unrighteous and wicked behavior in their lives.
2.  God tells us who have been born again and have spiritual live and power to take control away from sin and let God rule and reign in our lives. We are not to obey sin but we are to obey God. The members of our bodies are to be yielded to God that He can bring about righteousness in us and through us. For at one time we were dead in trespasses and sin but He has quickened us; given up spiritual life (Ephesians 2:1). “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Christ” (Romans 6:6) that “we should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:4).

It is a choice we make continuously. Let us fight the good fight of faith and press on toward the mark of the high calling Of God in Christ Jesus. GOD BLESS YOU IN YOUR JOURNEY.
