The Lord's Free Men

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law,
but under grace. (Romans 6:14)

Sin will reign if it can: it cannot be satisfied with any place below
the throne of the heart. We sometimes fear that it will conquer us, and
then we cry unto the Lord, "Let not any iniquity have dominion over me.
This is His comforting answer: "Sin shall not have dominion over you. "
It may assail you and even wound you, but it shall never establish
sovereignty over you.

If we were under the law, our sin would gather strength and hold us
under its power; for it is the punishment of sin that a man comes under
the power of sin. As we are under the covenant of grace, we are secured
against departing from the living God by the sure declaration of the
covenant. Grace is promised to us by which we are restored from our
wanderings, cleansed from our impurities, and set free from the chains of

We must lie down in despair and be "content to serve the Egyptians" if
we were still as slaves working for eternal life; but since we are the
Lord's free men, we take courage to fight with our corruptions and
temptations, being assured that sin shall never bring us under its sway
again. God Himself giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ, to
whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.
