Daily Fountain 2017 - "Knowing This ...."

Wednesday February 22

Bible Reading:     Rom. 6: 1 - 14

Topic:         "Knowing This ...."

One evening, a young man came out to his corridor for fresh air and as he sat there, a medium- sized fowl passed with both legs tangled with discarded weave-on.

The fowl could hardly move freely.

In sympathy, he caught the fowl and removed the tangled weave-on that had begun to eat into the flesh of the fowl and let it go.

However, the fowl did not immediately move freely. It still walked as though it was under the bondage of that torn weave-on.

The fowl did not know that it had been set free, that was why its immediate movement did not reflect the freedom it had been given.

So it is with some believers.

They live as those who are not aware of the fact that they died to sin when Christ died, that their old nature was buried when Christ was buried and that an entirely new person rose again in them when Christ rose from the dead.

Therefore Paul states that knowing this, we should reckon or account it so by faith and yield our bodies unto righteousness.

That is the path of victory over sin, the flesh and the world system.

It begins with "knowing this.."

Lord, help me to have the revealed and practical knowledge of the finished work of Christ, Amen

Memory verse:   Rom. 6: 14
"For sin shall not have dominion over you for ye are not under the law but under grace"
