The book of Romans is often considered a difficult text for the average reader. But reading it in the Message has really made it come alive for me. It was exciting to read Romans this morning!! Take a look:
Romans 6:12-14 (The Message)
12-14That means you must not give sin a vote in the way you conduct your lives. Don't give it the time of day. Don't even run little errands that are connected with that old way of life. Throw yourselves wholeheartedly and full-time—remember, you've been raised from the dead!—into God's way of doing things. Sin can't tell you how to live. After all, you're not living under that old tyranny any longer. You're living in the freedom of God.
