“Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?” Romans 6:1-2

Recently I was surprised to learn that it is not just young people who are living together without being married but a number of older people are as well. These older people have in the past have been people of high moral standards and now they seem to be casting off all restraints. Why this sudden change of standards? Is it because their obedience to high moral standards was only out of fear of the consequences and not due to any real sense of right and wrong?

We shouldn’t avoid sin simply because we fear the consequences but rather because we have “died to sin” and no longer live in bondage to it. Later in Romans 6 Paul speaks about our baptism being a picture of how we have died with Christ and “anyone who has died has been freed from sin” (6:7).

There are some days when we don’t feel free from sin but God’s truth is not dependant on our feelings. God said we have died to sin and we need to believe it. As we believe God’s word we will find it confirmed in our actions and feelings. God doesn’t want us doing the right thing out of fear but rather out of a sense of freedom.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
