Romans 6:1-6 asks us some introspective heart questions: “What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? Certainly not? How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it. Or do you not know that as many of us were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead, by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him (old nature, our flesh) that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.”
And isn’t that the question? Why are we still slaves to sin, guilt, and shame when we know what Jesus did for us on the cross? Why are we walking around, receiving every lie from the enemy, hanging onto our past, when we could be free?
