I am not under the law. (Didn’t I say that in the last post?)
There are no rules that bind me.
I have died to rules and legalism.
I am alive in Jesus Christ.
Paul concludes this “chapter” with a section that resonates so much within me. I truly want to always live to glorify Christ, but I find it very difficult so many times. Because I live on this earth, a war wages within me. The earthly part of me still gets jealous and allows pride and covetousness to control me; however, Christ lives in me. His Spirit leads me. When I give Him glory and live for Him, He rescues me from the destructiveness of myself.
