WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL RECAP

“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.” – Romans 6:6 (NKJV)

Welcome to the 25th Weekly Devotional Recap of the year. This week we learnt about walking in perpetual victory over sin. 

We started the week with a lesson on living above sin. Our victory over sin is already a spiritual reality. However, by recognising our identity in Christ (Romans 6:6-7),  allowing the Spirit of God to lead us (Galatians 5:16) and relying on the grace of God daily (Philippians 2:13); we make this spiritual truth our constant reality. 

On Tuesday, we learnt that we can experience victory over temptation every day. We do this by renewing our minds with the word of God (Romans 12:2), followed by consistent study of and obedience to God’s Word. We must also be conscious of God’s Spirit within us and endeavour to walk always in the Spirit (Galatians 5:16). 

On Wednesday, we took the lessons a notch higher as we learnt about our new nature in Christ which gives us dominion over the flesh and sin (Galatians 5:24). We were reminded that when we were saved, our old nature was crucified with Christ. We are now new creatures in Him (2 Corinthians 5:17). When we walk in this consciousness, we defeat every lie and temptation of the enemy to live contrary to the will of God. 

We were instructed on Thursday to guard our hearts jealously and intentionally from the things that expose us to temptations. Instead of fighting sin from its fruits, we must deal with it from its source and many times, the source of sinful habits is the content we may subconsciously consume. To do this, we should make sacrifices such as reducing or eliminating screen time and sometimes, cutting off communication with certain friends. We must be willing to make these uncomfortable decisions if we would walk perpetually in the victory that Christ begat us. 

We wrapped up the week on Friday with a lesson on yielding our members to God, emphasising the importance of offering every part of our being for righteousness. Drawing from Romans 6:13, we discussed how, like a musician mastering an instrument, our spiritual lives require continuous effort and dedication through God’s Word and prayer. Practical steps such as practising forgiveness, guarding our hearts and minds, and looking to Jesus for guidance help us align with God’s will and live a life that glorifies Him.

Dear Friends, we are no longer slaves to sin. Walk in your freedom today and forever!

Have a great Weekend!
