Pastor's Sunday Sermon

June 4, 2023

 

Biblical Law

  • The law, is the old testament, including but not limited to, the Ten commandments.

  • A part from the law sin is dead. The law is good at exposing and provoking our sinful nature. Sin uses the law to deceive us. We know that sin only leads to death.

  • But the law is good and is meant to bring us closer to God!

  • The blame for our death is not on the law but is on our sinful nature.

  • We don't need to change our laws, we need to change our hearts!

 

 

Bible Passage: 

 

Romans 7:7-13

 What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”[a] 8 But sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, produced in me every kind of coveting. For apart from the law, sin was dead. 9 Once I was alive apart from the law; but when the commandment came, sin sprang to life and I died. 10 I found that the very commandment that was intended to bring life actually brought death. 11 For sin, seizing the opportunity afforded by the commandment, deceived me, and through the commandment put me to death. 12 So then, the law is holy, and the commandment is holy, righteous and good.

13 Did that which is good, then, become death to me? By no means! Nevertheless, in order that sin might be recognized as sin, it used what is good to bring about my death, so that through the commandment sin might become utterly sinful.
