We just went through the consideration of what it actually is that we've inherited through Christ and how with it comes the accountability of stewarding the message of sin debt and debt reconciliation by Jesus to the broader world in general. We asked why it was we often waste our Lord's redemptive goods and squeamishly fail to get out the door with the message when the crafty of this world are out and settling other's accounts on much lesser unauthorized self enriching terms. How best is the sin debt made known? The way the God has always made it known; the Law.

It is the belief of a great many that the Law of Moses and all of the ordinances and precepts contained therein has passed. Largely they believe that because that is much the way that we ourselves have lived and conveyed that. The Lord has refuted that notion repeatedly. The law brings us to the prerequisite conclusion that we are each unrecoverable helpless sinners, that the wage of sin is death, that faith in the Redeemer Jesus Christ is the sole means of forgiveness of that debt and progressive sanctification from that most corrupted and depraved state. If we are to effectively convey the Gospel of Christ unto the salvation of faith we are going to have to deliver that message in conjunction with a convincing discourse based in the Law.

First must come a clear understanding of how the two work hand in hand. Then must come the passion for boldly/accurately presenting that understanding with the sincere compassion for other's future that sells the point enthusiastically. Otherwise we are wasting the Lord's goods.

kjv@Romans:7:1 @ Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?

kjv@Romans:7:2 @ For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.

kjv@Romans:7:3 @ So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.

kjv@Romans:7:4 @ Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.

kjv@Romans:7:5 @ For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

kjv@Romans:7:6 @ But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.

kjv@Romans:7:7 @ What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.

kjv@Romans:7:8 @ But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.

kjv@Romans:7:9 @ For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.

kjv@Romans:7:10 @ And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.

kjv@Romans:7:11 @ For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me.

kjv@Romans:7:12 @ Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

kjv@Romans:7:13 @ Was then that which is good made death unto me? God forbid. But sin, that it might appear sin, working death in me by that which is good; that sin by the commandment might become exceeding sinful.

kjv@Romans:7:14 @ For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

kjv@Romans:7:15 @ For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I.

kjv@Romans:7:16 @ If then I do that which I would not, I consent unto the law that it is good.

kjv@Romans:7:17 @ Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

kjv@Romans:7:18 @ For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not.

kjv@Romans:7:19 @ For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.

kjv@Romans:7:20 @ Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.

kjv@Romans:7:21 @ I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.

kjv@Romans:7:22 @ For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

kjv@Romans:7:23 @ But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

kjv@Romans:7:24 @ O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

kjv@Romans:7:25 @ I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
