The liberation from the power of sin is experienced the very hour a sinner accepts the Lord Jesus as Savior and is born anew. He need not be a long-time believer and undergo numerous defeats before he can receive this gospel. Delay in accepting the gospel according to Romans 6 is due either to the incomplete gospel he has heard or to his unwillingness in wholly accepting and fully yielding to it. Whereas actually this blessing should be the common possession of all the newly born.
This is a grievous misjudgment. The Bible never instructs us to crucify ourselves. We are taught that when Christ went to Calvary He took us there and had us crucified. We are not instructed to begin crucifying ourselves, instead the Scriptures assure us that our old man was dealt with at the time Christ went to the cross. Romans 6.6 alone is sufficient to substantiate this.
Sin will exercise no dominion over us in Jesus name. We must praise God for this deliverance thought Christ Jesus.
