From your Pastor;

    ...knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with...                  

                                                                                            Romans 6:6 

     Romans begins with the call to look back; not so much forward.  ...knowing this...  Knowing what? Knowing that this old self represents the sum total of everything we inherit from Adam. We recognize the old man by knowing what the new man is. Our new man embraces everything which flows new from the Lord at our regeneration. 
      We sin because the old man loves sin and is under its power. The body of sin refers to our body. The part of us which has become a puppet in all our sinning. It is called the body of sin because it is subject to the power of sin, fully with all lusts and desires of sin. 
       What is the consequence of the crucifixion of our old man?  The doing away of the body of sin.
Why does God do this? So we should no longer serve sin.  What God has done makes it possible for us to break the bond and the pressures of sin nor to be bound by its power. Sin will no longer have dominion over us! Hallelujah!!! 
      We must praise God for this deliverance.

“You are my hiding place, You always fill my heart with songs of deliverance; Whenever I am afraid, 
I will trust in You.”
