Romans 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
So often the power of salvation is presented by preaching about Jesus as only a Savior from Hell instead of a Savior from sin in all its dimensions: sin’s penalty, sin’s power, and in the future in our glorified state, sin’s presence. Jesus did not come to save us from sin’s penalty (Hell) to leave us dominated by sin’s power until we were removed from sin’s presence.
We have victory over sin’s power now for Romans 6:12-14 says, “12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 13 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. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”
If you are struggling with any sin you must first know of Jesus’ total victory over all sin. You must also know there is mercy (forgiveness) to obtain from God for your failure but also grace to help you overcome that you have to find. That grace is revealed through gaining knowledge from the Word of His grace which is able to build you up and sanctify you (separate you from sin and set you apart for God’s sacred use). Acts 20:32 says, And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.” Any power to be sanctified or holy comes from grace, the provision of God for us from the work of God by Jesus Christ. We also have the Holy Spirit of Truth in us to lead us to the truth that will set us free (John 16:13; John 8:32).
Finally, you must realize sin is of the will, or our will is involved in every failure as well as every victory to overcome. Take responsibility for your choices, decisions, and actions. No one makes you sin but we choose to yield to it. The Good News is that we don’t have to yield to it because we have freedom to choose right over wrong because of Jesus. Don’t settle for lessening sin or reducing the number of times you sin. Jesus paid the price for us to walk in an all out victory over sin.
