DO YOU WANT TO HEAR A SECRET?
The law strengthens sin! That’s right. The law gives sin a foothold into your life. But here’s the secret, if you believe in Jesus you do not have a sin problem but a righteousness problem!
See it’s the knowing of the truth that sets you FREE.
So why am I sinning? Because you’re beholding the law not Jesus. Jesus has made you righteous. The truth is all those who believe are righteous. WOW! Say that to yourself right now, “I am Righteous in Jesus”! See when you know you’re righteous in Jesus then you’re not trying to earn relationship your walking in relationship.
I mean let’s get truthful the only reason your trying to keep the law is so God will like you. The truth is He already loves you while you were a stinken heathen! But know you no longer stinketh but you’re a presented GIFT to your Father from Jesus and stamped across your forehead reads HOLY, RIGHTEOUS, and ABOVE REPROACH. When you have a love relationship with Jesus trust me you aren’t thinking about sin. I love my wife. She is everything I desire and when I am out with her I am not checking out the other fish in the sea. Why? Because I can’t even see them, all I see is her.
Freedom gives you choices and when you really know how free the Son has made you to be you become free indeed. That means the incorruptible seed of God’s spirit makes you walk in Holiness! So I will leave you with Paul’s rebuke toward sinners “wait”, no not toward sinners, but toward those who were trying to become righteous through the law!
Oh, foolish Galatians! Who has cast an evil spell on you? For the meaning of Jesus Christ’s death was made as clear to you as if you had seen a picture of his death on the cross. Let me ask you this one question: Did you receive the Holy Spirit by obeying the Law of Moses? Of course not! You received the Spirit because you believed the message you heard about Christ. How foolish can you be? After starting your new lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Have you experienced[a] so much for nothing? Surely it was not in vain, was it?
I ask you again, does God give you the Holy Spirit and work miracles among you because you obey the law? Of course not! It is because you believe the message you heard about Christ. (Gal 3:1-5)
