Transfer of Power 

By: Dr. Dan Schafer
"Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its evil desires" (Romans 6:12).
Political unrest. Jealousy. Rioting. In-fighting. The words could be taken from today's headlines. In fact, they describe turmoil in Israel during the transfer of power from King Saul to King David. "The war between the house of Saul and the house of David lasted a long time" (2 Samuel 3:1).  
But when David became king, he acknowledged an additional transfer of power. 2 Samuel 7:25-26, "Do as you promised, so that your name will be great forever. Then people will say, 'The Lord Almighty is God over Israel!'."  
In King Lear, William Shakespeare described a character's struggle with a decision: "Which of them shall I take? Both? One? Or neither? Neither can be enjoyed if both remain alive." Paul describes a similar inner struggle, "I want to do what is good, but I don't. I don't want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway" (Romans 7:19, NLT). He then identifies the source, "If I do what I don't want to do, I am not really the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it" (v. 20). The solution: a transfer of power described in Romans 6:12, "Do not let sin reign."
Sin shouts its perks and the Spirit whispers His peace, "Our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with,that we should no longer be slaves to sin" (Romans 6:6). The transfer: "Offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness" (Romans 6:13). Entire sanctification moves us from being slaves to sin, to having power over sin. This doesn't mean we automatically achieve a level of sinless perfection, but it does mean we now have the power to say NO to sin. 

Prayer: Lord, I surrender the kingdom of my heart to your eternal reign. I surrender a life of living in the self to living in the Spirit.
