Bible study on Romans – Chapter 7
Dear brothers and sisters,
In this bible study on the 7th chapter on the book of Romans we will go through the following parts:
- Release from the law, bound to Christ
- The law and sin
Release from the law, bound to Christ
In this chapter God makes it known that we are only bound by the law during our life. This means that if a married person dies, then the surviving partner is no longer bound by this marriage and he/she is not an adultress if he/she would remarry. Know that the same things counts for Jesus dying on the cross for us and us giving our hearts to Him. From that moment we were no longer bound by sin!
The law and sin
Never think that the law was sinful, because of Jesus dying at the cross brought us God’s grace. Without the law we would not have known about sin? Why because in the law it is said that we shall not covet. Although sin tried to covet, besides the law it was already dead.
We should not think that there is no sin, because there is and the Law alone was not enough for us to overcome it, that is way God gave us His grace! Although our sinful nature might think we are a slave to sin, when through Jesus we were actually a slave to to God’s law.
