Romans (6:8-11) explains that we are to die with Jesus in order to live. Jesus died for our sins and rose again so that death has no power over Him. If we are believers in Jesus and His resurrection, then we can consider ourselves dead to sin and alive in God. We must die to sin with Jesus in order to live with Him forever!
Like the opossum, "die" so that you can live! Consider yourself dead to sin and alive in God!
Thank You for the opportunity to be forgiven, so that I can be dead to sin and alive in You! Help me to live in You and for You in all I do. Through Jesus, the risen, I pray, amen.
