Struggle – You TRY to FIX You…But You Cannot FIX You
I am the First and the Last. I am the living one. I died, but look — I am alive forever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and the grave. Revelation 1:17-18
Today — What was UNLOCKed in the Resurrection?
And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. 5Since we have been united with him in his death, we will also be raised to life as He was… Romans 6:4-5
UNLOCKED #1 – A Relationship with God
Default when it comes to God — RULES
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. Romans 7:14a
Oh, what a wretched man I am! Who can deliver me? Thanks be to God who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord.
UNLOCKED #2 – A New Approach to God
If you belong to Christ Jesus, you have the power of the life-giving Spirit, which frees you from the power of sin that leads to death. The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. Romans 8:1-4
Sin is no longer your master, for you no longer live under the requirements of the law. Instead, you live under the freedom of God’s grace. Romans 6:14
- Sin, you are not my master!
Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
√ Keep in Step with God!
So I say, walk by the Spirit …and you will NOT gratify the desires of the flesh. Galatians 5:16
UNLOCK #3 — Inner Life-Changing Power
But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:
Fruit is not produced BY you, but IN YOU & through You.
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
