Romans 6: 12Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, 13and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

It’s easy to sin. The cravings of sin are so satisfying to our flesh and we all have our temptations. There’s everything from cursing out that person who took our parking spot, to lusting after that man or woman, to excessive eating. It’s difficult to fight the urges of our flesh, but the fight is well worth it.

Fighting temptation keeps us free from bondage. We may think we’re free by doing whatever our flesh desires, but we’re actually putting ourselves into bondage (John 8:31-36). Secondly, the more we exercise resistance to sin, the stronger we’ll become and the more we’re able to endure (Heb. 12:1-3). At first it may be extremely difficult to keep calm when our spouse is being annoying, but the more we maintain our cool, the easier it becomes. Finally, obedience to the will of God positions us to receive the promises of God (Isaiah 1:19).

Does this mean we won’t ever sin? No. But, we shouldn’t practice sin. We should no longer give in and accept sin as part of our identity.
Fight!!! And don’t let sin rule your life.
