Offering ourselves to God means setting our minds on loving our Heavenly Father.
Like a pin on a map, where your mind is set, our attitudes and actions will follow.
When our minds are se on God, we put Him first and we spend time with Him and in His Word, in worship and prayer and with people that love Him.
We can’t tame our tongues, but God can, as we give them to Him as instruments of righteousness.
Sing Gods praises, learn to recite scripture.
godly conversations at home or work or wherever you can. Ask Gods help to speak words of encouragement.
The FIRST reason grace does not allow Christians to sin is, sin is slavery. Whey would anyone whom God has delivered from slavery return to it again? God changes our natures when He saves us, but the nature of sin does not
Sin is always an evil slave driver. If you give way to greed, you become a slave to greed. If you give way to sexual sin, you become a slave to lust. If you give
room to bitter thots, bitterness will corrode your life. TAKE EVERY THOT CAPTIVE TO THE OBEDIENCE OF JESUS CHRIST. SUBMIT TO GOD, RESIS THE DEVIL AND HE HAS TO FLEE FROM US!!!!!!!!!!
The SECOND reason grace does not allow Christians to sin, is sin leads to death.
Adam and Eve chose to believe satan’s lie rather than Gods Word.
They took the fruit and ate it. What happened? They died.
They died in their spirits instantly. Their unbroken fellowship with God died and they hid themselves from God.
Their personalities began to die, they lied and shifted blame on each other. At last, their bodies died, for God said, “Dust you are and to dust you will return”- SIN BREAKS RELATIONSHIPS
The THIRD reason grace does not allow Christians to sin is, Jesus has delivered them from sins tyranny. But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you have been set free from sin.
The FOURTH reason grace does not allow Christians to sin is CHRISTIANS HAVE A NEW ABILITY TO OBEY. “Though you used to be slaves to sin, you have come to obey from your heart”
The FIFTH reason grace does not allow Christians to sin is Christians have a new master, Jesus has purchased believers for Himself. RENEW YOUR MIND WITH THE WORD OF GOD.
Chapter SEVEN (7)
I personalized the first portion of our study verses. (bfc)
Now dear Barbara, you are familiar with the Law-don’t I know that the
law applies only while I am living?? (But I am dead – my old self died when I asked Jesus into my heart- I am dead in Jesus so I am dead to the law!!!)
when a woman marries, the law binds her to her husband as long as he is alive. BUT IF HE DIES, the law of marriage NO LONGER APPLIES TO HER. So while her husband is alive, she would be committing adultery if she married another man. But if her husband dies,
she is FREE from the law and does not commit adultery when she remarries.
So, Barbara- THIS IS THE POINT---- You died to the
power of the law when you died with Jesus!!!!!
And NOW I am united with the
ONE who was raised from the dead.
AS A RESULT—I can produce a harvest of good deeds for God. When I was controlled by my old nature and sinful desires, that worked
within me, the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds – death.
LOOK THIS UP IN COMMENTARY!!!!!-bfc
But NOW I have been released from the law because I died to it and it no longer has its captive power over me. NOW I can serve God, NOT in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living
in the Spirit.
WE DIED 3 times – vs. 4-6
