LIVING A CROSS CENTERED LIFE— Today Pastor Gabriel Swaggart preaches from Romans 6:11, continuing his series on how the believer is to disengage from the nature of sin we are born with. Scripture tells us we are dead unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ. Pastor Gabe reminds the struggling believer to cry out to God, for the answer that we seek is found only in the Cross of Christ. If we look to Jesus for all our needs, the bondages will go. When we anchor our faith in the finished work of Christ, God’s grace will flow in our lives as the Holy Spirit will go to work on our behalf. As Christians, the divine nature takes over, and the sin nature is to be dormant. We are not to be ignorant of this truth, or in denial, or think we have a license to sin; we don’t. God doesn’t save us to leave us in sin, but to bring us out. Pastor Gabe warns us not to put our faith in our own efforts, this is misplaced faith that will not bring deliverance. It’s not our fight to win; it was finished at the Cross.
