Licensed to Kill

"...if by the Spirit, you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live" (Romans 8:13). The Apostle Paul speaks of putting to death those things in our lives that are sinful, that are contrary to God's best for us, and that steal joy in our life. This means that followers of Christ are "licensed to kill," that is, we are called to actively war against the sin in our lives, the sin that so easily entangles, so that we may stand firm in the freedom for which Christ has set us free (Galatians 5:1).
