A Life of Power Over Sin by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

A Life of Power Over Sin by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

…if thou shalt confess with thy mouth
the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine
heart that God hath raised him from the
dead, thou shalt be saved (Romans
10:9).

J
esus died to save man from sin, but salvation
from sin wasn’t enough. We were free from
sin and the consequences of sin, but we
weren’t free from the power of sin. The resurrection of
Jesus gave us a new life and power over sin. Thus, the
power to live above sin came from the resurrection; the
resurrection brought us a new life of righteousness!

This is why it’s compulsory that we understand
that true salvation is based on our faith in the death,
burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. If anyone
believes in the death and doesn’t believe in the
resurrection, their salvation isn’t complete, because the
resurrection is what gives us eternal life.

We read in our opening verse, “…if thou shalt
confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe
in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
thou shalt be saved.” Verse 10 continues, “For with the
heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the
mouth confession is made unto salvation.” From the
foregoing, we observe two things that are involved in
salvation: you must confess with your mouth that Jesus
is Lord of your life, and believe that God raised Him
from the dead. When a man fulfils both, he can then
declare, “I’m saved,” for with that, he’s at once ushered
into a new life; a life of righteousness, with power over sin.

If you’ve never been born again, this is what
you need: affirm the Lordship of Jesus over your life,
believing in your heart that He died for you, and that
God raised Him from the dead for your justification. Let
us know that you made that declaration by sending a
mail to info@rhapsodyofrealities.org

PRAYER
I pray for souls around the world today, that their
hearts be open to receive the Gospel, as the Word
is brought to them in diverse means. The veil is
removed from their hearts, and the light of the
glorious Gospel shines through, in Jesus’ Name.
Amen.
