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 sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. (Romans 6:6,14)
“The blood of Jesus made us a new creation in Christ.” – Mark Hankins
Our lives change when we receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation! Where we once experienced defeat, we now experience victory!
Romans 6:6 in the Richert Translation says, “…our former evil identities have been executed, so to speak. Our old rebel selves were exterminated and that leaves us no further role to perform as offenders. We were linked with the Divine Representative in death.”
We will overcome any barriers in our lives by the redemptive revelation of who we are in Christ. Romans 6:14 in the Knox Translation says, “Sin will not be able to play the master over you any longer.” The Wood Translation says, “Sin shall not be tyrant over you.” We can have a revolutionary revelation and walk in the light of what God has done for us in Christ. The tyrannical masters that once ruled our lives will rule no more!
Confession: Sin does not have dominion over me. I am walking in the light of what God has done for me in Christ Jesus!
