victory over sin

“For sin shall not have dominion over you for you are not under the law but under grace Romans 6:14.”

Jesus came to give us complete victory over sin’s dominion in our life. Many know of the grace that saves or that takes us out of sin (its rule/authority/dominion) but know very little of the grace that sanctifies or that takes sin out of us (acts of sin after salvation). Grace has power to keep us from sinning not just provide forgiveness when we do sin.

Salvation gives us a new position in the spirit from which to relate to sin and the Word of God helps us to grasp it by giving us different pictures of our relationship to sin. While we were “In Adam” we had our lifestyle dominated by spiritual death or our fallen nature, satan, and the lusts of our flesh Ephesians 2:1-3. But God who is rich in mercy and love when we receive His salvation everything changes and we are put in a superior position called “In Christ” Ephesians 2:4-6.

The power and potential of all of this is ours by grace and went into effect in our new creation spirit, though it is all unseen and unfelt by us when we got saved. We must gain knowledge of all that went into effect in the spirit, our spirit, and the spiritual side of what Jesus did for us. This position we have by grace is to affect our practice or our walk with the Lord.
