REGARDLESS OF WHAT THEY SAY, THIS GOSPEL TRUTH WILL NEVER CHANGE; UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), 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? CERTAINLY NOT!”
SIN CAN ONLY EXERCISE POWER OVER THOSE UNDER LAW. YOU SEE, THE LAW ACTIVATES THE SINFUL PASSIONS AND IT 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.”
BEAR IN MIND THAT IN CHRIST OR UNDER THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE, SINS ARE NO LONGER CREDITED AGAINST YOU, FOR CHRIST FULLY PAID ALL OF IT ON THE CROSS.
(2 Cor. 5:19) “God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them.”
UNDER THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE, GOD SAID: “I WILL BE MERCIFUL TO THEIR UNRIGHTEOUSNESS, AND THEIR SINS AND THEIR LAWLESS DEEDS I WILL REMEMBER NO MORE.”
(Heb 8:12) “For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
(Heb 8:13) In that He says, “A NEW COVENANT,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
UNDER THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE WE ARE GUIDED BY TWO MAJOR LAWS: THE “LAW OF LOVE” AND THE “LAW OF FAITH”.
(John 13:34) “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. As I have loved you”
(Rom. 3:27-28) “Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? Of works? No, but by the “Law of Faith”. For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from observing the law.”
REMEMBER, “LOVE” IS THE FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW!
(Rom. 13:10b) “Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law”
THE BIBLE SAYS THESE THREE REMAIN: FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE. BUT THE GREATEST OF THESE IS LOVE.
(1Cor 13:13) “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
