The death of sin…in the believer’s life
(Sin was buried today!)
by Maria Warner-Dowrich
We celebrate the death of sin, today!
He has been taken far, far away!
No longer to reign,
within hearts – unfeigned.
The great deceiver –
No longer in the body of the Believer.
No longer allowed to enter therein,
No longer shall he reign within.
For the Holy Spirit now dwells where he once did-
Within the hearts of believing men,
Now, on Christ, we do depend.
On “the cross” at Calvary Christ buried sin!
He fought and kicked but couldn’t win.
For Christ, now dwells deep within,
the body that once welcomed sin.
Today, sin and I, are no longer friends,
And this is how our relationship ends!
Sin has been nailed to the cross, my friend!
Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. Romans 6:11-12 (NKJV)
