Today I will leave the prison of sin and, with God’s help, stay out. “What does the prison have that you desire? Do you miss the guilt? Are you homesick for dishonesty? Do you have fond memories of being lied to and forgotten? Was life better when you were dejected and rejected? Do you have a longing to once again see a sinner in the mirror?” Max Lucado Life Lessons on Romans 6
Could it be any clearer that our former identity is now and forever deprived of its power? For we were co-crucified with him to dismantle the stronghold of sin within us, so that we would not continue to live one moment longer submitted to sin’s power.
The Passion Translation
Today I will toss the key to my prison cell of sin onto God’s altar.
