This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 12 — Romans 6:15 – 7:6
Study 12 From The Book of Romans Is: Romans 6:15
Two questions may arise out of Paul’s argument
so far; the first, ‘Shall we then continue to
sin? And the second, ‘How is it
possible to be not under law?’ The first is answered in -23, and the second in 7:1-6.
1.In -23, what two masters are contrasted? What
kinds of service do they respectively demand, and with what result? In view of
all those things, what is the only possible answer to the question whether we
should continue in sin?
2.To answer the second question
(How is it possible to be not under law?) Paul finds in the marriage tie an
illustration of a person being subject to law and subsequently set free from it
(verse 4). In the case of the Christian, by whose death is his old position
under law brought to an end? Who is the new husband? And what are the fruits of
this new union, as contrasted with those of the old? See verse 5 and 6.
Note 7:4. When Christ’s
body was broken in death, He passed to a life free from all subjection to legal
ordinances, and we having died with Him, are also set free. Sharing in His resurrection life, we are able
to live no longer in legal bondage but in the glad obedience of love.
