Christians are spiritually crucified in Christ, no longer having to follow the desires of the world. However, sometimes it’s difficult for believers to apply this spiritual reality to the passions, desires, and lusts of the flesh. Those who have mastered the sinful desires have kept their focus on God. Sense knowledge cannot grasp this reality; it is a spiritual understanding. Listen for more about this important spiritual truth in this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on June 4, 2017.

Key verses are taken from Galatians 2:20, 5:24, 6:14 and Romans 6:5–11.

For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection, knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin. For he who has died has been freed from sin. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him. 10 For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11 Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord. —Romans 6:5–11 NKJV
