“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. 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. But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.” Romans 7: 4-6
Sooo much good stuff in these words! It’s almost hard for me to contain it haha! When it discusses the “law” it’s referring to the original law of commandments that were in the old testament. So basically, if you are reborned or renewed in your heart, the law (commandments) no longer pertain to you! Wow! So what does this mean…doesn’t mean that you can sin all the time and not have any consequences, the truth is that when you understand the significance of Jesus dying on the cross and what it means, your heart will forever change and you will no longer have a desire to sin or follow darkness. Yay! When this beautiful thing clicks and happens, your old sinful self will no longer be attached to you. Jesus makes all things new, even you! Here’s the proof! Live a life of freedom!
