“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:1-2
The Sanctified life; the life that leads to Holiness, Godliness and Righteousness, is strictly a work of the Holy Spirit. Precept upon precept and line upon line, old things pass away and all things become new as we walk out our Salvation with fear and trembling.
As we look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, the One Whose Blood paid our sin debt and broke the power of sin in our lives, we give the Holy Spirit latitude through our faith in Jesus to do that which He is commissioned to do…free us from the law of sin and death.
40 days of purpose will not free us from the law of sin and death. Fasting was not given to the Body of Christ for freedom from the law of sin and death. Humanistic psychology and other methods from the vanities of man’s mind will not free us from the law of sin and death.
God gave us ONE answer for sin and that was His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ.
“16 For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
18 He that believes on Him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God.” John 3:16-18
There is therefore no condemnation for those who believe in Jesus Christ, Who He is and what He has done on Calvary’s Cross for whosoever will believe. There is conviction of sin from the Holy Spirit for the Believer but there is no condemnation.
The Sanctified life is strictly a work of the Holy Spirit in the lives of those Who deny themselves, pick up their cross and follow Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will never speak of Himself (John 16:13) but always point us to the One Who Overcame death, hell and the grave…Jesus Christ. Be determined to know nothing else.
