We Are Called to Die Daily to Our Old Self…

The righteousness of God brings us to our knees in guilt while the gift of righteousness from God raises our eyes to Christ as our only hope.  Dead to sin and alive to Christ once and for all in regeneration (Romans 6:1-11), we are called to die daily to our old self and live daily by “the free gift of God,” which “is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Romans 6:12-23).
