About The Road to Union Series
The new creation exists in union with Jesus and the Father—a fact. Yet the road to union isn't based on attainment, but revelation and realization.
Reading Romans 7 NASB:
12 So then, the Law is holy and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.
14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of flesh sold into bondage to sin.
15 For what I am doing, I do not understand; for I am not practicing what I would like to do, but I am doing the very thing I hate.
16 But if I do the very thing I do not want to do, I agree with the Law, confessing that the Law is good.
“The Law is spiritual.” God gave the Law to reveal Himself…AND expose humanity to its own self. The Law shatters our delusion that God is like us and lets us be. No, He is altogether “Other”. The Law IS holy because it reveals God! The Law shows us we are condemned, and the sentence is death.
The Law of God is the great distinction of Christianity. All other religions create their own idea of god. The Only True God is Who He says He is—and not what mankind believes. The Law of God works to bring us to NEED Him, because it reveals how very far we fall short of the glory He intended for us, His most precious creation.
