Romans 6:14 says, “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” For those struggling with sinful nature, are told twice in Romans chapter 6 that God says that believers in Christ are “free from sin.” Trusting in Christ is the only way to victory over sin while trying harder is the way to defeat.
In Romans chapter 6 and half of chapter 7 we are told that When Christ died for us, we died with Him. When He rose again, we rose with Him to walk in newness of life. When a believer realizes this truth and yields to God at the moment of temptation, he will experience practical deliverance from sin.
In Romans chapter 8, the Holy Spirit is mentioned nineteen times! Believers are to live a life of celebration of victory of Christ on the cross. We are to live triumphantly through the power of the Holy Spirit within us. In John 14:15-17 Lord Jesus asked the Father to send us the Holy Spirit in order to give us deliverance from our flesh and empower us to live holy lives.
