|A typical weekend view this time of the year. Yard sales!|
When I first thought of a picture for this challenge, spring-cleaning & yard sales came to mind. Though as the week went on I began to think of something more significant. Living in a sin-filled world and born with a sin nature, we accumulate “junk” by the bucketfuls. But, we do not have to live like that. Jesus, the holy Son of God, gave Himself as a sacrifice to clean us from sin so we can put off the old nature and be cleansed as white as new snow.
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.
Romans 6: 6-7
O wretched [person] that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.
Romans 8: 1-2
