That’s what Jesus did!

WWJD? What would Jesus do? This is a saying many use to figure out what Jesus would do in their situation.But I prefer to focus on what Jesus did.He made me dead to sin. He made it so that sin has no power over me. When I trust and rely on Jesus and his power and his life-saving resurrection, I can say no to sin.God is brought down here to earth to live in me. He shares with me his thoughts, his desires and his plans. He gives me strength I do not have to break habits that lead to sin.When he speaks to me I understand him. I spend my days listening to his voice. The world around me tries to drown him out. Old habits rise up and try to get my attention. Fears and anxiety surround me.I keep one ear open to him at all times. He guards my thoughts and keeps me from saying thoughtless words. He gives me knowledge and wisdom when I need it. He provides sanctuary for my tired heart and soul. He gives me wings when I am weary. He fills me. He protects me.That’s what Jesus did.Romans 6:7-11 What we believe is this: If we get included in Christ’s sin-conquering death, we also get included in his life-saving resurrection. We know that when Jesus was raised from the dead it was a signal of the end of death-as-the-end. Never again will death have the last word. When Jesus died, he took sin down with him, but alive he brings God down to us. From now on, think of it this way: Sin speaks a dead language that means nothing to you; God speaks your mother tongue, and you hang on every word. You are dead to sin and alive to God. That’s what Jesus did.
