THE BIBLE SAYS THAT THE LAW HAS AUTHORITY OVER A MAN ONLY AS LONG AS HE LIVES.
(Rom 7:1) “Do you not know, brothers—for I am speaking to men who know the law—that the law has authority over a man only as long as he lives?”
YOU SEE, GOD IN HIS WISDOM PROVIDED A DEATH FOR US IN CHRIST SO THAT THE BODY OF SIN MIGHT BE THAN AWAY WITH AND THAT WE SHOULD NO LONGER BE SLAVES TO SIN.
(Rom 6:6-7) “For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body of sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin—because anyone who has died has been freed from sin.”
NOW, BY DYING ON THE CROSS WITH CHRIST, WE HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM THE LAW SO THAT NOW WE SERVE IN THE NEW WAY OF THE SPIRIT AND NOT IN THE OLD WAY OF THE WRITTEN CODE OR THE LAW.
(Rom 7:6) “But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.”
NOTICE THAT WHEN GOD INCLUDED US IN CHRIST’S CRUCIFIXION, WE DIED TO THE LAW (OUR FIRST HUSBAND SO TO SPEAK) AND NOW MARRIED TO CHRIST (OUR NEW HUSBAND) IN ORDER TO BEAR FRUIT TO GOD.
(Rom 7:4) “Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God.”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
