Living by Faith: The New Way
What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God—through Jesus Christ our Lord! Romans 7:24-25a
- When you live according to the new way of the Spirit you bear spiritual fruit. 7:1-6
- Your obligation as a Christ follower is not to the law because it stirs up our flesh.
- Our obligation as a Christ follower must be to the new way of the Spirit.
- Our identity with Christ means we have died to the law.
- God’s law which is holy and good reveals that sin leads to death. 7:7-12
- God’s law which is holy and good magnifies the grossness of your sin but it is incapable of rescuing you from your sinful flesh. 7:13-24
- The victorious new way of living is made possible for every believer who obeys Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit. 7:25; 8:1-13
- Are you living in the new way of the Spirit or in the old way of the flesh?
- Are you bearing fruit to God or fruit to death?
