Under The Law

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14

One thing I think a lot of people don’t understand is the grace and laws of God. Many misunderstood Paul and thought he was trying to teach that the Laws of God don’t exist anymore. This is because people didn’t understand the differences between Gods old and new covenant, flesh and spirit.

You see if we continue to live by the flesh, even today, we are subjected to the laws of God. But if we truly accept Jesus as our savior, and we truly live by the Holy Spirit, Jesus paid the physical ransom for us. If we live by the Spirit, we are no subjected to the law because a holy person doesn’t lust for things of the flesh

Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. Matthew 5:17

Jesus made it perfectly clear, he didn’t abolish the laws of God, but he fulfilled the scriptures becoming our Messiah and saving us from the wages of our sins. Those who believe they can break the laws of God and still receive his grace are blasphemous.

If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. Galatians 5:25

If we truly are reborn with Christ, then we need to live in the Spirit. You are the temple of God and the Holy Spirit will live in you, however if you continue to live by the flesh, The Holy Spirit can’t remain there. Remember Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit is the unforgivable sin according to Jesus

For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, Hebrews 10:26

As God tells us if we continue to sin willfully after receiving God’s grace, there is no more redemption for us. Do we still make mistakes as Christians? of course we do, are we still forgiven? Of course as long as we are truly repentive and striving to live by The Holy Spirit. When we call ourselves Christians and still continue to live a sinful lifestyle, then you will no longer be covered under the blood of Christ but face the Laws of God in Jesus Name Amen

    Thanks for explaining this in a very simple way (I sometimes get a headache with other explanations of the matter!)–this is one of your many gifts! It’s so refreshing when God’s truth is explained in a very simple way.
