Live by Grace
“In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.” Romans 6:11 (NIV)
You struggle with a sinful fallen nature, but exercise faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and live by His grace. Be alive in faith and believe that He died for you on Calvary’s cross and that He rose from the grave for you so that you may live in newness of life, now. Contemplate His great sacrifice and step forward in Christ’s grace through faith.
It does not matter how often you fall as long as you keep getting up by His grace, but you must trust that in Christ you are dead to sin. That means you don’t give sin life by yielding to it, rehearsing it, and keeping it alive in your mind.
Let’s pray today in meditation upon the glory of our Lord and His grace for us.
