Gen 3:16-19 → Curse: 1st Adam (Physical)
John 10:1-18 → Grace: 2nd Adam; JESUS (Spiritual)
2 Corinthians 4:15-18 →Not under the curse anymore but under Grace.
1 Corinthians 15:21-22 →”Alive” in Christ now, NOT “dead” in Adam again.
From all these, we can note that the LAW deals with the “physical” while GRACE deals with the “spiritual” (Romans 7:22-25)
Furthermore, it is expedient we note here that “serving GOD” is a “mind” thing; on a spiritual NOT physical plane. So we shouldn’t give Satan the “power” to make us feel useless or not up to standard each time our flesh (physical plane) derails.
Little wonder, Jesus said in Matt 5:20-28 that the “sin” starts from the heart (mind) and NOT when it’s being acted out in the physical plane…
…But should all these now serve as an excuse to SIN willingly and at ease? (Romans 6:1-2) NO!…because Romans 8:1-14 (emphasis on 13 & 14) went on to further explain how WE (believers) can “conquer” and rule over our “physical plane”→(flesh demands which leads to SIN) by simply fulfilling our spiritual demands first. Matt 6:33
All these, I believe is the SECRET to living a “righteous” life; “Mortifying the deeds of the body via the Spirit”.
Remember: JESUS promised The Holy Spirit who is to come guide us into all TRUTH and also comfort us. John 16:7-14
#Pray earnestly that The Holy Spirit take charge of your life. Hunger and thirst for HIM and you’ll surely be filled.
Study GOD’S WORDS and OBEY HIM. Shalom!
