DAY 27 - STEPPING INTO THE FUTURE
“And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.” Romans 6:13 (NKJV)
When you were sinners, living a lifestyle of sin was easy and almost automatic. Everything about you was enslaved to sin. Now that you are saved and a child of God, you can equally submit yourself to become a vessel of righteousness. We are no longer slaves to sin, but slaves to righteousness.
When your life is yielded to the power of righteousness, you will find yourself doing things that please God. When you think of the stories from the Bible, you see many examples of men upon whom the Spirit came.
They performed extraordinary miracles and wonders, because they were under the influence of the Spirit.
We will also do great exploits when we yield to righteousness, and allow that new Christ-like nature to lead us. All we need to do is surrender to His grace and walk according to our identity in Him.
“I am a child of God. What used to empower sin in my life is now dead. I’m now a servant and a slave to righteousness. My mind, my tongue and all that I am is under the influence of grace. Without struggle, I’m manifesting the God-kind of life.”
