The Bible reads, “Don’t invite that insufferable tyrant of sin back into your mortal body so you won’t become obedient to its destructive desires. Don’t offer your bodily members to sin’s service as tools of wickedness; instead, offer your body to God as those who are alive from the dead, and devote the parts of your body to God as tools for justice and goodness in this world. For sin is no longer a tyrant over you; indeed you are under grace and not the law” (Romans 6:12-14, The Voice).
The Voice commentators write, “Now sin and death no longer define us, but grace does: God’s favor has been given freely to us through His Son, Jesus, who liberates us from sin’s power” (1465).
I think it was Doug Fields who once said, “The question is not ‘how far is too far’ but ‘how might I know God more?'” For far too long I have been asking all the wrong questions.
Why do we have this tendency to want to die all over again after we have known what life is really like?
