Dead to Sin

15 Feb

It’s easy to see my weakness, my propensity toward sin, and my inability to be like Jesus. Confessing this truth requires no faith at all. On the contrary, to do as Paul commanded in Romans 6:13, to consider myself dead to sin, I must believe God!…

Apart from Christ, we are unworthy. And it’s true that without Him we are nothing. But I am not without Him and I never will be again! At what point do we start thinking of our worth through His eyes?… Wouldn’t it honor Him more if we believed that He actually did a good enough job in saving us, and that we are really saved?
