When Jesus died for our sins He gave us the power to die to our sins. Sin is a bully. Sin will tell you, “You can’t beat me. You may as well give in.” But when you give your life to Jesus, sin is all talk. It has no power over you, even if you don’t realize it. Whether or not sin reigns in your life is up to you. You can rise up against sin. You can tell sin to back off and back down.
