IF YOU ARE IN CHRIST AND YOU DON’T KNOW THAT YOU ARE “UNDER GRACE” (NEW COVENANT), I THINK SOMETHING IS WRONG WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL FEEDING. YOU SEE, ONLY UNDER GRACE CAN SIN LOSES ITS POWER 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!
YOU SEE, THE GOSPEL OF GRACE THAT CHRIST REVEALED TO THE APOSTLE PAUL WHEN BELIEVED AND OBEYED SETS YOU FREE FROM SIN AND MAKES YOU A SLAVE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.
(Rom 6:17) “But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness.”
NOTE: SIN GETS ITS POWER FROM THE LAW.
(1Cor 15:56) “The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law.”
YOU SEE, WHEN WE BECAME PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST, WE “DIED TO THE LAW” IN ORDER THAT WE MIGHT BEAR FRUIT TO GOD.” (Rom 7:4) “So, my brothers, you also DIED TO THE LAW through the body of Christ that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit to God.”
BY DYING TO WHAT ONCE BOUND US, WE HAVE BEEN RELEASED FROM 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.”
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
