‘Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body……. (Romans 6:12).
Sin is like weeds. To love roses you must hate weeds, declare war on them and uproot them before they spring up. Reason because if left unchecked, they will take over your garden and destroy every good thing that grows.
Your soul, spirit and body is that beautiful garden. You don’t need to cultivate weeds before they spring forth. Therefore keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life (Proverbs 4:23).
