” Putting Aside The Old Way Of Life “

thJBNSEVK5vg

Change is never easy in any matter, but if we are talking about life or death then who would not want to gain eternal life? We must put aside the way we know is not right and not just consider it, but truly live a life that is pleasing to God and be obedient in serving His ways over our own. (Romans 6:16-23).  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness. I speak after the manner of men because of the infirmity of your flesh: for as ye have yielded your members servants to uncleanness and to iniquity unto iniquity; even so now yield your members servants to righteousness unto holiness. For when ye were the servants of sin, ye were free from righteousness. What fruit had ye then in those things whereof ye are now ashamed? for the end of those things is death. But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

 

WE have been given so many wonderful gifts from the Lord such as salvation, grace, forgiveness, hope but to have the ability to turn our life around for the better Repentance just may be the best gift man has to have a new lease on life! (2 Peter 3:9)……(Psalm 68:18)….(Ephesians 4:8).

 

As Christians we know our life is hid in Christ and if we abide in Him then sin no longer has power over us as it once did, therefore our old life is crucified with Christ and we now have newness of life. (Romans 6:1-10).  What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God.
