  • My conscious mind whole-heartedly endorses the Law, yet I observe an entirely different principle at work in my nature. This is in continual conflict with my conscious attitude, and makes me an unwilling prisoner to the law of sin and death.
          • (Romans 7:20)
the war within me
The War within me…
  • In my mind I am God’s willing servant, but in my own nature I am bound fast, as I say, to the law of sin and death. It is an agonizing situation, and who on earth can set me free from the clutches of my sinful nature?
  • I thank God there is a way out through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Will-Power Will NOT do it

ephesians 2 2 5
EPHESIANS 2:2-5
  • The ruler of the kingdom of the air, the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. All of us also lived among them at one time, gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts. Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. But because of his great love for us, God…made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved.
sensual pursuits have a cost
Sensual Pursuits have a Cost
  • But lusted exceedingly in the wilderness, and tempted God in the desert. And He gave them their request; but sent leanness into their soul.
      • PSALM 106:14-15
under grace not law
Under Grace, Not Law
  • Do not offer any part of yourself to sin as an instrument of wickedness, but rather offer yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life; and offer every part of yourself to him as an instrument of righteousness. For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace.
        • ROMANS 6:13-14
choose obedience
Choose “Obedience”
  • What then? Shall we sin because we are not under the law but under grace? By no means! Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
                  • ROMANS 6:15-16

  • “Now then, you and all these people, get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them—to the Israelites. I will give you every place where you set your foot…
  • that you may be successful wherever you go. Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night…”
colossians 3 1 6 we are dead
Colossians 3:1-6 “We are dead”
  • Memorize
  • Personalize
  • Visualize (living in those verses)
colossians 3 1 6
Colossians 3:1-6
  • If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.
  • Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
2 nd translation of colossians 3
2nd Translation of Colossians 3
  • Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
  • Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry.
