We understand what it means to kill something or someone—it ultimately means to take away its strength and power. We are reminded that indwelling sin is compared to a person, even a living person “the old self” or “old man.”
When we are mortifying sin we are aiming kill all that “inclines, entices, impels to evil, rebels, opposes, fights against God.”
In other words, when we are mortifying sin we are going after all that is evil, desires evil, and lures us toward evil. And we go after it like intolerant, unaccommodating, spiritual assassins.
But we don’t just stop there with a scorched earth sanctification. We must work to cultivate a new desire to replace the fallen lusts:
“by the implanting, habitual residence, and cherishing of a principle of grace that stands in direct opposition to it and is destructive of it. So, by the implanting and growth of humility is paid weakened, passion by patience, uncleanness by purity of mind and conscience, love of this world by heavenly mindedness: which are graces of the Spirit, or the same habitual grace variously acting itself by the Holy Ghost.”
We are working to put off and put on. We are putting sinful vices to death and putting godly virtues to work. The old writers speak of mortification (putting to death) and vivification (putting to life or quickening).
How do we mortify sin? We mortify sin by examining our hearts, minds, and lives in the light of the Word of God and under the conviction of the Holy Spirit. When we see or a fellow believer helps us to see something out of step with the Bible then we work to put it to death.
I should also note that the emphasis of mortification is not simply on the fruit but on the root. It does little good to just simply stop being angry without realizing a strong desire to control people and things. The lust will simply find another way to express itself in its craving for control. Instead we have to deal with the heart issues at the root to see why and how we want to control people and things rather than to trust God and deploy his methods.
It is simple: because God’s Word says we must ( Rom. 8:13 ). Let’s not forget this is what believers should want. We want to be holy and reflect Jesus Christ. To want to tolerate sin is an intolerance of holiness. It is an insult of the blood of Christ that bought us ( Heb. 10:26ff ).
There is also an aspect of the lingering effect of unmortified sin. Owen reminds us that left alone, unmortified sin will do two things: it will weaken the soul and deprive it of its vigor, and it shall darken the soul and deprive it of its comfort and peace. This is what sin does when it reigns in us; it weakens and darkens. Oh, we have great need to mortify sin.
For three weeks each summer, the Alliance Theatre assembles a diverse group of 20 teenagers from metro Atlanta to explore and unpack a classic text under the guidance of a professional playwright and director. Through improvisational exercises, oral history, choreography, the individual performing talents they possess, and their writing, the teenagers create a new piece inspired by the classic text but perceived through their own utterly unique and contemporary prism. The PalefskyCollision Project affords teens a unique theatrical experience and gives them ownership of a performance at the Alliance. It also gives students validity – confidence in their talents, strength for the future, and power in their decisions.
Through this dynamic project, metro Atlanta teens create theater for and about themselves by “colliding” with a dramatic text, reinforcing the idea that theater can address their particular ideas and feelings.
The PalefskyCollision Project is a fantastic way to become a part of the South’s premiere regional theater company, meet and collaborate with professional theater artists, participate in an innovative creative process, and make great new friends from schools all over the metro area!
