But Brother, Paul writes "Likewise reckon ye yourselves ye yourselves also to be dead indeed unto sin (inbred sin) ..." We are to reckon our selves dead to inbred sin. Also in Rom 6:6 ' Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE DESTROYED that HENCEFORTH WE SHOULD NOT SERVE SIN" My brother, it clearly states that the old man was crucified for the purpose of the destruction of body of sin (inbred sin)Is not deliverance from inbred sin come through reckoning?
There is a navigation formula called dead reckoning. As a pilot I gather all the information, heading to destination, weather, fuel, speed, distance, wind direction, altitude, etc. then plan my trip. Is this not the way God wants us to reckon ourselves dead in Christ and alive unto God. Gathering all the information for the trip. Don't forget to get the weather forecast from the One that is given this reckoning formula to get to where we are going. In Christ to the Father.
