Getting the Upper Hand Over Sin

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Neither yield ye 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.” Romans 6:13

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Did you know that if you let the devil be uppermost in your life today, it is because you are doing the letting? Before you were saved, you had no choice. You were a slave to sin. But now, you don’t have to let sin have the upper hand in your life.

There is absolutely no power that says you must sin. When you entered into union with Christ, you no longer have to let sin reign in your mortal body. You have dethroned sin and enthroned Jesus Christ as Lord of your life.

ACTION POINT:
We need to be like the man who prayed, “Lord, help me cooperate with You, so You won’t have to operate on me.”
