I wanted to post this when I learnt about it but, it hasn't worked out. This is from youth group last Friday and I would like to share it with all of you.
Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law has dominion over a man as long as he lives? 2 For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. 4 Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, that we should bear fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions which were aroused by the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. 6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.
In verses 1-3 it gives the description of a woman, she is married to a man. That man dies, she is no longer under his rule nor authority. She then gets married to a new man. She is now under his authority and rule. That is the same with us and God. We are first under the law of sin. It is what we live for. But as soon as we believe in what Jesus did for our sin, sin dies in your life and you are under God's law. (Verses 4-6) You live for Him. Your desires and ways of life change. We don't want nor need to live for sin anymore. We live for God. We still sin because aren't perfect in anyway, but we should be better and getting better than we were before because Jesus changes us. He changes us to make us more like Him everyday. And the more we are like Him, the more we bear fruit, character, for Him. We should be sinning a little less everyday. We should be doing more things for God and not for us everyday. Everyone should be able to notice the difference in you, you should see the difference in yourself. Because if you aren't changing, you should be asking yourself if you really are a Christian. The old way of life shouldn't be appealing anymore.
Let Jesus transform you every single minute. Don't let sin rule in your life.
God bless y'all, keep being awesome!
