No Vacancy for Sin
Romans 13

Text: But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. Romans 13:14

Learn and Apply: Our salvation is nearer than when we first believed, Paul says. Therefore, we must put on Jesus – His word, His way, His precepts, and make no provision for the flesh. We must make sure we are not leaving the back door open for sin to enter. Our spiritual lives must be airtight. We must leave no vacancy for sin.

Is there that unbelieving friend you are keeping close? That sin partner? That last resort? Just in case you want to have a taste of the world again? Just in case you want to go back to your vomit? To Egypt? To the world? God forbid. Let us put away every thought of turning back. We have decided to follow Jesus, therefore, no turning back to the world of sin and shame.

As we make ready for the coming of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, may we be encouraged today to look unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith, and to say goodbye to satan, sin, and sin partners.

May God help us to put on Jesus every day, in Jesus name.

Declare: I shall not go back to the life of sin. I have decided to follow Jesus. Forward ever backward never. I receive strength to stay the course. In Jesus name.
