VICTORY OVER SIN.

"Likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God through Jesus Christ our Lord" - Romans 6:11
.
One of the major struggles of everyone, especially youth is how to overcome sin. 
.
Sin leads to destruction and it separates you from God. Sin gives the devil the right to torment and accuse you before God. But thank God for our victory in Jesus. 
.
Jesus was alive on earth and He died to sin once. That is, He did not live to serve the interest of sin. Because He was alive, He lived to serve God and not the flesh or the world. 
.
Your victory over sin is achieved when you live like Christ on earth. You cannot be dead to sin if you do not live for God. You must live for something.
.
Living your life based on morals or discipline without living for God won't help you overcome sin. Joseph lived for God, this made him flee the sexual temptation that was thrown at him. When you live for God, you'll regard Him with your spirit, soul and body.
.
However, without salvation, you cannot live for God. Religion only makes you conform to the tenets of your religious leader. Going to church without being born again cannot give you victory over sin. 
.
It is only through Jesus that you can overcome sin. Come to Jesus. Repent (confess and forsake) of your sins and be converted. 
.
You cannot reckon yourself dead to sin through your decision or determination; the strength of the flesh cannot overcome the works of the flesh but a higher power, the Holy Spirit is needed.
.
Have you been rising and falling into sin? Do you found it difficult to let go of that sinful habit? Come to Jesus. Be saved. Be born again. Live your life for Him and don't live your life to serve sin.
