Default Re: The Law

But what does it look like to be living under The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ?

Go to church? Remit your tithe? Teach Sunday School? Go on a missions trip?

These are all very good things aren't they? But the instruction from the apostle of grace tells us that they all are as filthy rags to Christ if operating under the Law of Sin and Death. Because anything that does not proceed from faith is sin Romans14:23

Let's view it another way. What if you have been justified by grace through faith, can you then avoid and refrain from the assembly of the saints or from sacrificial giving or service to others? How would that work for the one who has received the spiritual power to be conformed into the likeness of Jesus?

For those who experience no condemnation from God, have also been empowered to represent Christ on earth. Were we given this power in vain?

I will allow for that question to rest there.
