SIN IS NOT OUR MASTER

Sin+shall+not+have+dominion+over+you +for+ye+are+not+under+the+law,+but+under+grace+(Romans+6 14)

 

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

 

Sin is mentioned many times in the Bible going back to Adam and Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden from the Old Testament and all the way through the pages of the Bible to the New Testament. It is described in terms of acts of sin, a nature, and a power that can exert its influence through desires called lust. Sin grows and is designed systematically to conquer you. It’d be easier to find a man who never committed a particular sin than to find a man who only committed it once. It starts small and grows. People who have repeatedly fallen into sin often come to believe that they are helpless in the war against it. They resign themselves to reduce the number of defeats that they experience; however, God commands us to fight sin (resist) wholeheartedly. He doesn’t permit us to settle for anything less than an all out victory over sin.

 

Why? Because Jesus paid the total price to deliver us from every aspect of sin: sin’s penalty, sin’s power, sin’s presence (future). Jesus is the answer to both occasional sin (Romans 6:15) and habitual sin (Romans 6:1).  Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you for you are not under the law but under grace.” The grace of God made available to us by Jesus’ victory over sin empowers us to live victorious over sin and to have dominion over it.  We can rule over sin’s temptation and power. Sin is no longer our lord, ruler, or master but Jesus is our Lord, Ruler, and Master. We’ve been delivered from the authority that rules the darkness of this world and sin and have been translated into the kingdom and rule of God’s Son Jesus (Colossians 1:13). “Awake unto righteousness and sin not … 1 Corinthian 15:34.” “Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin Hebrews 12:4.”
