“What shall we say then?  Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase?  May it never be!  How shall we who died to sin still live in it?  Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus have been baptized into His death?  Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.  For if we have become united with Him in the likeness of His death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin; for he who has died is freed from sin.”  (NLT)

Romans 6:1-7

 We are continually being bomb shelled with temptations.  A major help in overcoming your struggles is to realize who you are in Christ and then begin daily to speak it.  He has declared that through Christ your old life has died and because of that positional truth you are no longer a slave to those sin struggles you are having, but through Christ you are victorious.

 “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is

He that is in you, than he that is in the world.” (KJV) 

 I John 4:4


I declare that I am an overcomer.  Sin does not have control over me.

I am victorious and I choose to walk in this victory every moment
