“So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions. Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness. For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.” (Romans 6:11–14)

How does God see the way you are living. When God looked down on the people of Israel and Judah and the sins the committed. Very grievous sins of idolatry. Worshiping idols, sacrificing children, and given over to sexual immorality they practiced such things ignoring God’s warning of judgment. God used words like whore, adulterer, shameful, and insolent toward Him.

Christians living under grace today act much like Israel in those days. Many present themselves, live in, and accept the unrighteousness of the world. How much different it would be if we considered seriously how we present ourselves before God. When God visited Job to address the state of his life, God said in essence present yourself rightly before me and I will speak to you.

Present yourselves to God this day and sin will not reign over you, control you, or enslave you.
