How weak have we made the Gospel?

How weak have made the Good News of Jesus?

I know in the past it has been easy for me to reduce Christianity to a list of dos and don’ts. I would be a better Christian if I didn't do this or if I did do this. This is fine and all, but do we focus on this "list" more than focus on God for who He is.

Read Romans 7:1-6

What do you take away from that passage? The few things that hit me were the fact that we have died with Christ and our old nature is dead. Not sleeping - dead. We are no longer prisoners to the law. If you are thinking "oh, that means I can do anything" read the rest of Romans 7.

The main thing that I need to fully digest, and that I hope you will dwell on, is the second part of verse 6. . "Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit." Let our focus today not be some magical to-do list, because there is no such thing. Let our focus be only on Jesus and living by the Spirit. May we find freedom in Him as we become more like Him.
