We created these daily readings for the week of Easter to help prepare our hearts to remember and celebrate the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus our Savior! We encourage you to spend some time each day in these readings, not only reading them but processing their implications on your life and your love for God!
“Death to Sin”
Our sin demanded a penalty and Jesus paid that price, once and for all!
“For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.” – Romans 6:10
The death that Jesus died on Good Friday He died to sin…in two ways. First Jesus died to sin meeting the legal requirements of our sin. Our sin demanded a penalty and Jesus paid that price, once and for all! Secondly, Jesus died to sin breaking the power of sin! For those who have put their faith in Jesus, sin no longer has any power over them. In Jesus we are no longer slaves to sin! Our job is now to believe this to be true for us because of Jesus.
