Transcript of The Believer
We will never love and serve our new husband Christ as we should and He delights as long as we deal with Him like our old husband, the Law.
The Believer and the Law Overview
What is the value of the Law?
Sanctification cannot happen through the Law
An Obvious Principle
Iron gloved in Velvet
The Dead don't get Tickets
A Growing Illustration
Paul is not teaching on marriage
Paul is talking about the impact of death on a legal contract
Other scripture is clear about marriage and divorce
Death frees from legal submission.
It forever nullifies the previous contract.
Applying the Principle
Our First Marriage
Our Sin is always the product of our sinful passions
“Can the Ethiopian change his skin or the leopard his spots? Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil.”
The only fruit from our sinful nature is death
“20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 But what fruit were you getting at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death.”
The Law incites, arouses, and energizes our flesh
"For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace."
A Better Husband
A Relationship of Freedom
A Relationship of the Spirit's Work
You will attempt to change through more discipline and rules; thinking this is the solution to your sin
You will think and act like the commands of Christ are unreasonable and excessive
You will base your acceptance in Christ on your holiness, success and failure, or service
You will do religious things out of a sense of obligation rather than a longing to spend time with, exult in, or learn more of the love of Christ.
You will place the emphasis on what you do rather than why you are doing it.
