In this passage, Paul reminds us that because Christ died for us, we are no longer bound to live in our sin.

He emphasizes our unity with Christ in both his death and resurrection and calls us to count ourselves as dead to our sin and alive to God in Christ.

The knowledge of God's endless grace should push us to pursue righteousness rather than live as slaves to our earthly desires. His desire is that we may flee from sin and run into the fullness of life that only He can offer.

Let's take time today to meditate on the Lord's incredible love and grace, and to use that as a reminder to draw closer to God in our weakness rather than hiding from Him in our shame.
