If I was your mother I’d smack you right up side your pretty little head!
“Get that nasty OLD MAN off right now! He’s stinks like crap and is weighing you down.”
As christens we carry around our OLD MAN on our back, not wanting to let go, what a lame thing to do. We are spiting in the face of Jesus, the Dude hung on the cross for us to lose this OLD MAN.
(SIDE NOTE: if you don’t know Jesus and have yet to give your heart to him…then you better get on it honey, times a wasting. I’m not going to hold your hand …there’s no “Jesus loves you” babble here.
And I am sure the hell not going to hold your hair back as you keep vomiting up the things of this world. Maybe you could find one of them sweet “Christian love spewing mommy” blogs to help you with that. But I’m not one of them.)
You see that OLD MAN on your back... it is dead! How sick are we to carry around a dead old man on our back….*gaggin*
He’s Dead! Dead! Dead! Gross! Gross! gross!
He’s rotting, beating you down, and stinks like HELL, get him off!! NOW For Christ sake!
What the eff am I talking about?? Don’t know?? It’s the old sin we keep revisiting, the old shame and past we can’t seem to let go of.
Honey, I know believe me, I do it all the time. Beating myself up over crap I did in the past, for mistakes, bad judgments, SIN, SIN, SIN.
It’s not pretty, this rotting corps on my back, he keeps whispering shit in my ear. However it’s my choice to keep him, Jesus is not going to rip him off my back and bury him in the back yard. He’s already killed the guy for us…what more do we need.
Romans 6:4-6 tells us that when Jesus died on the cross (we all know the story right…we don’t celebrate Easter for that dam bunny after all, but I do love me some chocolate mini eggs)  we were buried with Him and Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we walk in newness of life.
 “Knowing this, that our OLD MAN was CRUSIFIED with HIM, that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves of sin.
I shit you not, that’s what it says…read it for yourself.
Romans 6:7-11 goes on to tell us that we are no longer ruled by the power of our past Sin…that sin is dead…our OLD MAN is Dead. The Grace of God has defeated all the past crap in our lives. Our sin has been deprived of it's power over us.
We are no longer slaves of our past sin, it is dead, but we carry the stinky shit on our backs every day! It’s sure not because it feels good! WTF?
Now check this bad boy out. (Didn’t think you were going to get a fricking bible study today did ya...HA!)
Romans 6:12-14 Tells us WE must consider ourselves DEAD to SIN but Alive in God, However we have a continual choice day after day whether to yield to our sin or to God.
I do not lie, there is much more but I can’t do this all for you. Dust off your Bible or better yet go buy yourself a new one…they have some pretty pink ones, and study this stuff yourself. I’m not your mother after all!
Smells good don’t it.
