Dominion Over Sin
Genesis 4:7 "If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.”
It's really interesting to me, that long before Jesus came, in fact, since the beginning of time, God had told man that he could rule over sin!
Many of us have often felt helpless against sin; there are sinful habits that we have struggled with for a while: indeed sin wants to control us, but we must understand that we have been free from sin!
Romans 6.12-14 says, "Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." Amen!
