|Daily Armor for Peace Officers
Whether you are an officer who is new to the faith, a seasoned believer, or unsure of where you are spiritually, it is our desire
that these quick and simple truths from God's Word will encourage you in a relationship with Jesus Christ.
(A devotional is posted 2 days a week. Circumstances, such as traveling may occasionally delay new postings).
Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to
be dead indeed unto sin, but alive
unto God through Jesus Christ our
Lord. Let not sin therefore reign in
your mortal body, that ye should obey
it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye
your members as instruments of
unrighteousness unto sin: but yield
yourselves unto God, as those that
are alive from the dead, and your
members as instruments of
righteousness unto God.

|When I first entered law enforcement as a deputy, one of the first things that was communicated to
me in a strong manner was the fact that because I was now wearing a badge my personal life and
conduct should be of such that it would not tarnish that badge or the reputation of the Sheriff's
Office. Being an LEO carries a great responsibility, not only because we enforce the law but also
because our badge represents the character and integrity of every other LEO in the country.
Similarly, as Christians we represent the Lord Jesus Christ; we are His ambassadors (2 Corinthians
5:20). Just as we should renounce certain things when we become a LEO we also should renounce certain
things when we become a Christian. In today's text we see that we are to be dead unto sin. This means
we who belong to Christ are to forsake our sin, to turn from it, to renounce it. When we are dead unto
something we no longer yield ourselves to it and in fact it has no control over us. Do you struggle with a
particular sin and think there is no way to gain the victory over it? If so, think about this; Jesus Christ
WON the victory over sin on the cross. We who know Him as Savior have His Spirit living within us
giving us the strength to resist the sinful desires that invade our minds.
The only way for sin to control us and enslave us is for us to yield ourselves to it. Yes, this sinful flesh
is weak and because of that we will still sin. However, we don't have to be a slave to it! When we sin
we need to immediately confess it to God and ask for His forgiveness, and then move on not yielding to
it again. If you are enslaved to a sin, ask God to give you the victory over it and through His strength
forsake it today and experience the freedom Christ bought for you.
