Dead to This World

Galatians 6:14 (KJB) But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.

Take Up Your Cross December 19th 2015

Are you spiritually alive and dead to sin?

For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. (Colossians 3:3 KJV)

Naturally men are born dead in spirit to God and physically alive unto sin, but when man is born again or quickened spiritually alive unto God, man is spiritually alive unto the very nature of God and dead unto the power of sin and his own self-interest, living for the will of God.
