Proverbs of a 35 yr old man.
Don't let sin keep ruling your lives. Sin shouldn't have power over you because you are not controlled by laws, but by God's favor. Having an undeserved grace through Christ, keeps us from living under the law of sin and death. Giving us the freedom to live in spirit and truth. Sin is no longer our master, we are released from the old way of the written code. We serve in the new way of the Spirit. Having a righteousness not from the law at work in our bodies, bearing fruit for death. But a righteousness coming from Christ working in our hearts! Holy Spirit uniting with our spirit to bear fruit for eternal life. If we are alive in Christ then we are dead to the sinful passions aroused by the law. The law is holy but we are not. The righteousness that comes from Christ is our only hope to overcome sin. In Christ we can do all things because he strengthens us. Stop straining gnats and swallowing camels. But start living in relationship with Christ and he will give you the victory over sin. Study Rom. 6:14
