Dead to Sin; Alive to God
Romans 6:12-14 - Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body. Doctrine is always something to be applied; not to only be considered. In this sermon on Romans 6:12-14, Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones divides Christians into two groups based on interest in doctrine verses practical matters. Is Christian doctrine simply an intellectual hobby? What is the distinction between us and our “mortal body”? Look at the connection between mortality and corruption. Sin remains in our bodies, and if it is not kept in check, then it will reign in our bodies. Sin is not dead, but we must remain dead to sin. Yield your members as slaves to righteousness and holiness! Do not allow sin to reign, for God provides a way out! “Sanctification is not a gift to be received.” Listen as Dr. Lloyd-Jones give this exhortation. We are called, not to a sudden deliverance, but to a life of sanctification. Do you long to be holy? We must understand this doctrine and continually remind ourselves of it. It is the truth that sanctifies us and makes us free! “It is God’s purpose to make us holy and He is working in us.” Resist the devil and he will indeed flee from you!
