“So, my brothers, you also have died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you may be married to another, to Him who has been raised from the dead, so that we may bear fruit for God.” Rom. 7:4
In Romans chapter 6, Paul says that through Jesus’ work we are dead to sin. At the beginning of chapter 7, he talks about how we are dead to the law through Jesus’ work. Thus we should not be under the dominion of sin or the law.
Instead of being under the rule of sin and of the law, we belong to Jesus. Sin always brings problems. And when we try to live under the law, on the terms of the law, it also always brings with it problems. The solution is Jesus.
When you believe in Jesus, you are liberated to belong to Him. You can now by faith have fellowship with Jesus. And when Jesus lives in your heart, you will bear fruit for God. Jesus’ life within you will flow through you and glorify God.
So, stay close to Jesus also in your consciousness, by constantly reminding yourself that Jesus lives in your heart. Do not go back, neither to sin nor to the law, but focus only on Jesus. With Jesus, anything is possible, there is no one like Him. Jesus is the greatest, best and most beautiful.
God bless you.
