Living Sacrifice 11

(1) "Knowing" our sin nature has been rendered powerless (Heb 2:14); he who is dead is free; the inability to operate (Rom 6:6-10, Rom 4:3); (2) "Reckon" -- consider it a fact and act as if dead to sin and alive to God (Rom 6:11, 1Th 4:3); (3) Present "Present yourself to God as those alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord (Rom 6:12-13, Gal 2:20);
