As we continue our Christian journey and penetrate deeper into the narrow path of Romans chapter 6, every believer is confronted with a whole new reality regarding Law and Sin. There is a heightened awareness of the reality of sin due to a fresh encounter with the Cross. Before that, sin might have been trivialised due to the perception that one was living uprightly. After all, most of today’s Church continues to make allowances that contradict God’s Law, resulting in a certain casualness regarding sin. To properly understand sin and its consequences, one must first understand the reality of God’s Law; you cannot fully appreciate one without the other. What is your response to this new reality?
The Lord is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake;
He will exalt the law and make it honorable. (Isa 42:21)
