Reckon yourself dead to sin and alive in Jesus Christ! Yes, I know this is way easier to say than do, but the good news is that this is possible. If we keep living in our sinful ways day in and day out this can only lead to the destruction of our body, mind, and spirit. We were not meant to live like this because God created us to live righteous just like Him. He wants us to have eternal life and through living righteous and following Jesus this is possible even in today’s society.
I would be lying if I said I am completely sinless but I do try every day and pray to God for strength to resist. As Christians people around us have certain misconceptions about how we live but through kindness, courage, patience, and sharing knowledge we can educate those people and try our best to make them understand. This is the hardest thing that you will ever do in your whole life but the rewards are something that you can’t achieve anyway else. Remember through the power of Jesus anything is possible!!
‘But if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him; knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death no more hath dominion over him. For the death that he died, he died unto sin once: but the life that he liveth, he liveth unto God. Even so reckon ye also yourselves to be dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey the lusts thereof: neither present your members unto sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves unto God, as alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under law, but under grace. ‘ Romans 6:8-14
