Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

October 25 - Evening

"What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?"

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires. Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness."

- Romans 6:1, 2, 12, 13

Alive to Righteousness, Dead to Sin


As a testimony to the power of grace against the enemy of sin, Paul sees the need to defuse a grievously wrong concept concerning grace. A false concept and a deviant application of God’s all-powerful grace is to engage in a life of sin.  Paul had just written the Romans that God’s grace is greater than sin.

“Where sin increased, grace increased all the more.” – Romans 5:20

But, if the greatness of God’s grace causes a person to conclude:

                “We should go on sinning so that grace may increase!” (from Romans 6:1)

Paul’s response is an absolute: “By no means!”

We are the people who have died to sin when we renounced it at the point of faith in Christ. The presence of sin remains in us and around us, but as far as our relational status with sin, we
are dead. We will no longer cooperate with sin. And, when we do sin we consider it failure and
do not accept it as the modus operandi.

Because this is our attitude, we accept Paul’s advice when he tells us:

“Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires.”

So, we cooperate with righteousness. We are alive to righteousness and we seek to make righteousness our daily method of operation.  So, we will offer ourselves:

“…to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness."

  Christian Quote from Church History
“You may as well quit reading and hearing the Word of God, and give in to the devil,
if you do not desire to
live according to it.”
– Martin Luther

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information


Akrogoniaios (Gr) - Cornerstone (Eng) - the Greek word akrogoniaios is made from
two Greek words:
1) akron meaning "top" or "tip," and
2) the word gonia which means "an angle" or "a corner."

Literally the word akrogoniaios then means "at the tip of the angle."
was the word used to refer to the stone set at the corner to establish the proper angle. A cornerstone is used as an image of the Messiah by Isaiah.


Herod the Great built a monumental building 2,000 years ago over the site known as the Tombs of the Patriarchs in Hebron. This building still stands and is built in the style of the Herodian Temple Mount. Below this structure are shaft tombs from the time of Abraham and Sarah with construction of buildings dated to the Old Testament times that cannot be seen today due to Muslim control.

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I allow sin to be part of my accept lifestyle?
Is sin my modus operandi or is it righteousness my normal method of life?
I will learn to recognize sin and then stop allowing myself to participate in sinful activity.
