WE HAVE HEARD SO MUCH PREACHING AGAINST SIN, AND RIGHTLY SO! HOWEVER, MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT THE LAW (TEN COMMANDMENTS) IS NOT THE SOLUTION TO SIN; IT WAS NOT DESIGN TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN US, BUT THE WORST IN US. IN FACT, THE LAW ACTIVATES THE SINFUL PASSIONS IN US TO BEAR FRUIT TO DEATH.
(Rom 7:5) “For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death.”
(Rom 7:8) “But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of covetous desire. FOR APART FROM LAW, SIN IS DEAD.”
THE LAW (TEN COMMANDMENTS) WAS DESIGNED TO BRING OUT THE SIN IN US SO THAT EVERY MOUTH MAY BE STOP AND THE WHOLE WORLD MAY BECOME GUILTY BEFORE GOD.
(Rom 3:19) “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.”
SIN GETS ITS STRENGTH OR POWER FROM THE LAW. HOWEVER, GOD GIVES US THE VICTORY OVER SIN THROUGH CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD. (1Cor 15:56-57) “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
THE ONLY ANTIDOTE TO SIN IS GRACE! UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), SIN CANNOT EXERCISE LORDSHIP OVER YOU.
(Rom 6:14-15) “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace. What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
