What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning so that grace may increase? By no means!
We died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

Romans 6:1-2

Principle:
“You can no longer live the way you used to live, because you are no longer the person you used to be.”

“A Christian is not merely a justified believer. He is someone who has entered into a vital personal union with Jesus Christ...justification is not a merely legal pronouncement that doesn't touch our life.”
John Stott, Men Made New

“If you fail to see yourself as a child of God, you will struggle vainly to live like one, and Satan will have little trouble convincing you that you are no different from who you were before Christ. But appropriating by faith the radical transformation of your core identity from sinner to saint will have a powerful, positive effect on your daily resistance to sin and Satan.”
Neil Anderson, The Bondage Breaker

“It is a mistake to think of the believer as both an old man and a new man, or as having in him both the old man and the new man.”
John Murray, Principles of Conduct

“A Christian is not simply a person who gets forgiveness, who gets to go to heaven, who gets the Holy Spirit, who gets a new nature. Mark this - a Christian is a person who has become someone he was not before. Becoming a Christian is not just getting something, no matter how wonderful that something may be. It is becoming someone.”
David Needham, Birthright
