Dead Rebels

Re:Verse passage – Romans 8:1-4 (day six)

The law turned us into rebels, or rather the power of sin did, taking advantage of the law. The law made it personal. No longer were we committing moral wrongs arbitrarily, we were willfully sinning against a personal and holy God. So overrun by the power of sin, we were as good as dead; walking corpses.

And the law could do nothing about it. Left to the law, shackled by the power of sin, we are nothing but dead rebels.

So, God did what the law could not do, He sent His own Son.

“I am the resurrection and the life,” he said.

“Come out of that grave,” he said.

And the dead rebels breathed and rejoiced.

  1. Danny, your chosen words were absolutely the clearest description of sin and the law and rebellion. Such amazing grace that this dead rebel is breathing and rejoicing and praising the Lord this morning. You are such a blessing to me. Thank you sweet brother in Christ.
