Don’t Let Sin Be The Boss Of You

      There is a saying that I used to hear kids say and it was “You’re not the boss of me.” It meant, “You don’t tell me what to do.”
In Romams 6:12, Paul said essentially the same thing about sin. Paul challenged us, “Do not let sin control the way you live; do not give in to sinful desires” (Romans 6:12).
       Notice Paul said, “Do not let sin control you…” We are all sinners and we all slip but Paul is saying we shouldn’t let sin own us…control us. Ok, practically speaking, what does thst mean? It means we need to be disciplined enough to stay away from things that can cause us to sin.
       What are you most tempted by? Is it sex? Maybe alcohol? Maybe you have a temper? All of us face different temptations. That is part of being human but, we don’t need to let it control us. Today, be aware of what tempts you and stay away from it. Don’t let sin control you.
