“For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin.” Romans 6:6

“We know,” we don’t think or hope or wish it to be so, we know our “old self was crucified with him.” This is past tense our old self was crucified. However, our desires are still strong and insistent, but like the snake which continues to wriggle after it’s dead, our desires wriggle for attention. We overcome by believing God’s truth—we were crucified with him.
