The old sin nature is dead, but not gone.

Thursday, February 25, 2010

Verse 6: “Our old man was crucified with Him.”

Verse 7: “He that hath died is justified from sin.”
Verse 8: “We died with Christ.”
Verse 11: “Reckon yourselves dead unto sin, but alive unto God in Christ Jesus.”
Verse 13: “Present yourselves unto God as alive from the dead.

 

God’s grace was extended to us God’s grace was extended to us to the maximum in eternity past.

 

God cannot pour out His grace any more than He did, regardless of how we behave; whether properly or shamefully. God does not react to our failures.

 

All the Grace that we will ever need has already abounded in our direction from the throne of God. But you have said in your heart, ‘I will ascend to heaven; I will raise my throne above the stars of God, And I will sit on the mount of assembly In the recesses of the north. I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.’

 

The Lord is ever at the right hand of God making intercession for us.
He is our advocate. He is the One who pleads our case.

The old sin nature is no longer the controlling factor in the life of the believer; its power has been broken.

After salvation the old sin nature still resides in the cells of the body, but its rulership has been broken.
Since the old sin nature has been robbed of its power, the only reason it still rules is because we exercise our free will in favour of it.
He provided everything we would ever need before the foundation of the world.
He has bestowed every blessing upon us long before He created us.
He provided everthing we would ever need.

He is not surprised by anything we do.
