- We are to know some things about ourselves in relation to the work God has done on our behalf. (Head)
- We are to reckon them as so (consider it a done deal – count on it as a fact). (Heart)
- Finally, we are to present ourselves and yield to God so that the facts work themselves out in life! (Hands)
(Romans 6:6-13 NKJV) – (6) knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. (7) For he who has died has been freed from sin. (8) Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, (9) knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. (10) For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. (11) Likewise you also, reckon (consider) yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. (12) Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. (13) And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present (yield) yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
