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 in NASB:
…the Law is holy, and the commandment is holy and righteous and good.
…the Law is spiritual…
There is a dilemma to the unsaved person: the need of a Savior. But there is also a dilemma to the saved person: how to live in the new nature! The great tragedy is that most born-again believers never solve the issue, never really enter the life God intended.
To explain the whole issue of the Law is very difficult. Paul ‘teaches’ doctrine but then he opens up his own personal experience to convey the reality of this crisis – a crisis that appears over and over again in the form of failure, futility and unsolvable guilt.
