DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Sin Must Not Dominate You
If there is anything that Christians must have victory over, it is sin. This is because sin destroys, it haunts, it limits a person’s progress. Sin stains people’s image and character. Sin is poisonous, it ridicules and brings shame and disgrace. The essence of our faith in Jesus, and the symbolism of the water baptism we passed through, are to make us conscious of the fact that we are dead to sin and have been licensed to walk in newness of life. In the process, when sin comes, knocking at the door of our lives, we must resist it and overcome it and not allow it to dominate or overcome our lives.
Point of Emphasis: Let not sin reign in your mortal body.
Prayer Point: Lord, I receive the grace and power to be victorious over sin all the days of my life.
