Yield yourselves unto God

Romans 6:12-13 “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”

Download Yield yourselves unto God

Humans are creatures yielded to something or someone. While sinful men often boast of their “freedom” to do as they choose, it is our choosing that reveals our slavery.

The desires of sinful flesh are only to do evil and sin.

Redeemed children of God are not free from their flesh and therefore struggle against the same desires. The wonderful reality of salvation is that we do not have to let them rule us.

The indwelling Holy Spirit of God grants us power to be free from allegiance to sin.

For us, it becomes a matter of yielding our members.

Our challenge is submission to God’s will and rejection of our own.

The Lord has made us well-able to be victorious.

Romans 6:12-13 “Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”
