Romans 6:14; "For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace."
Studying the above scripture, i realised that if you are living under the law or requirements of the law (knowing the difference between right and wrong), sin can still dominate your life because we are only human and cannot overcome sin by mere decision. It is the grace of God that empowers us to overcome sin in our life.
Remember Apostle Paul in Romans 7:14-25; verse 21-23 said, "I have discovered this principle of life that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong. I love God's law with all my heart but there is another POWER within me that is at war with my mind. This POWER makes me a slave to the sin that is within me."(NLT)
Jesus also mentioned this weakness to his disciples in Mathew 26:41; "Watch and Pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak".
As a believer it is by the grace of God that you can live a successful christian life but this grace does not come automatically, it only comes through FAITH,(Ephesian 2:8). Faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Have faith in the Christ Jesus!
Dear Father, I thank you for your grace upon my life, sin shall not control my life. I declare that I am the righteousness of God by faith in Christ Jesus! Amen!
