Our friend Terry Fitzsimmons wrote this. I am convinced he is now at peace, waiting to awaken from his sleep. Terry was from the south and spoke with a drawl and I remember discussing naming this particular song. “I’m Dead, I Reckon” made us laugh. Enjoy. What a great concept for my heart!
“Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, is never to die again; death no longer is master over Him.
For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts, and do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God.
For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”
– Romans 6:8-14
Here’s to God’s grace in a very imperfect warrior environment.
