One of the most difficult things that the body of Christ is yet to understand is the concept of being sin free. Here is what the Bible says:
Romans 6:22 “But now being made free from sin and become servants of God you have your fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life.”
If you are a Christian, I want you to know that you are sin-free. You were not only delivered from sin but you were made “sin-free”. This is what Paul is writing to us today in our text verse. When we read the entire chapter 6 of the books of Romans we realize that Paul was teaching us a principle called “righteousness consciousness”.
Let me get clearer, for example, to be “free from debt” is not the same as being “debt-free”. When a person’s debts are paid off or cancelled, he can be described as being free from debt but it does not mean he can no longer have debts in the future. If that person owes someone else in the future he would still be considered as being in debt. But when a person is “debt free” it means that he has lost the ability to owe anyone. It means that it is no longer possible for him/her to ever owe anyone.
It is the same with you as a new creation, you are “sin-free”; meaning you no longer have the ability to sin; it is part of your nature and you were born that way.
In John 5:24 the Bible says “when we are born again we were translated from death to life”.
Romans 6:14 says sin “shall not have dominion over you”; as a child of God you are more than conqueror. Do not struggle to quit smoking or drinking in your life, delight in Christ and He will take care of that. In 1 John 1:7 the Bible says “if we walk in the light as Jesus is the light we have fellowship one with another and the blood of Jesus Christ automatically cleanses us from all unrighteousness”.
As a Christian, you should know that you died with Christ and were buried with Christ (Ephesians 2:5-7). That means the person that could be defeated actually died and a new person was created called the new creation (2Corinthians 5:17). This is your nature so enjoy your life today.
Dear Father, I thank you for making me a success; I am sin free in the sight of God. I rejoice today for my new life in the name of Jesus. Amen.
