You are Alive to Righteousness

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24

To be dead to something is to be unresponsive to it. When it calls, you don’t pick up. When it solicits your attention, you refuse to buy what it sells. You are dead to it and it is dead to you. On the contrary, to be alive to something is to be responsive to it, alert and engaged, ready to do whatever it needs you to do. You are alive to it and it is alive to you. As born again believers, we are to be dead to sin and alive to righteousness. We are to be responsive to the Holy Spirit and ready to do whatever the Lord instructs us to do. Sin is like a powerful vacuum. If we get close enough to it, it will suck us all the way in. It doesn’t take sides, it comes to take over. Thank God that when we have those sinful areas that seem to be alive in our lives, we can stand on the truth of God’s word!

Declare by faith today, “Lord, you said in your word that Jesus bore my sins in His own body on the tree. I do not have to live another day responding to whatever my flesh wants to do. I am your daughter and you said that I am dead to sin and alive to righteousness! I thank you that no matter how I feel, no matter how it looks, no matter what I have done in the past, I choose to believe Your word. I am alive to you.”
