Romans 6:9-11 “For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, He cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over Him. The death He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life He lives, He lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus.”

Just as death no longer has authority over Jesus Christ, the Living One, it no longer has reign over the Believer’s life. Jesus sacrificed Himself for our sins, once for all, making the Way possible for us to come to the Father…a bridging of the gap so to speak, between sinless God & sinful man. But the hinge-pin of these verses…the single phrase we should carefully consider is, “In the same way”. If we are alive to Christ, like Him, we must then consider ourselves dead to sin, for a corpse can’t sin. And this new life isn’t just a gift of eternal life from God…it’s the gift of the indwelling God, the Holy Spirit.
