I Am No Longer a Slave to Sin. Romans 6:6

   "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." NKJV
  "We know that our old sinful selves were crucified with Christ so that sin might lose its power in our lives. We are no longer slaves to sin." JCB

  Paul goes on to say in verse 6:18. "Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living."
  It's all in our heads.
  At least, that's where it starts.
  By focusing on what is good and right and holy, the tongue, the heart and the body fall into line. 
  The best part is we're not in this alone. A wooden puppet named Pinocchio had Jiminy Cricket, the personification of his conscience, who tried to keep him on the right path. We also have a Guide to help us stay focused, to bring us back when we stray. The Holy Spirit is much, much more than Disney's tuxedoed, singing insect...

  He is the indwelling essence of God sent to help us overcome all obstacles.
  If we let Him.
  If we let Him teach us about grace.
  If we let Him show us how to forgive.
  If we let Him show us where we need to ask for forgiveness.
  If we let Him show us what peace really means.
  And love.
  And freedom.

  If we believe.
