I’m Under Grace, Not the Law
For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace.
The good news of the Gospel is that sin no longer is in control of your life.
Jesus’ blood has paid the penalty for sin and has broken the power of sin. Before you came to Christ, sin was your master. You were in bondage to temptation and a slave to the call of sin.
When you came to Christ, everything changed. Sin is no longer your master. God’s grace has set you free from the law of sin and death.
The law always leads to condemnation.
You can never be “good enough” to please God through the law. The standard of the law was perfection, and none of us are perfect. So many Christians claim grace but still live under the law. They forget the power of God’s grace in their lives.
Because of God’s grace, sin is no longer your master. Before you came to Christ, sin reigned over your heart and life. Now, you have complete freedom in Christ.
The law was given to help control our old nature. Grace came along and replaced that old nature with a new nature empowered and transformed by the Holy Spirit.
The law demands obedience and reveals your sin.
Grace provides the will and the power to live in obedience and fellowship with Christ.
The goal of grace is not freedom to sin, but freedom from sin.
Grace gives you the power to live above your sin.
As a follower of Christ, don’t allow sin to control you; walk in the freedom and power grace provides.
Look at that promise again.
For sin shall not be master over you, for you are not under law but under grace. – Romans 6:14
Make this confession.
- Sin is no longer my master.
- Christ has set me free from the power of sin.
- God’s grace gives me the power to live in freedom from sin.
- I am no longer under the law but under the grace of God.
In Jesus Name,
I am so excited at how God is using The Daily Promise to encourage and strengthen Christians with the promises of God’s Word. Help me encourage others by sharing the Daily Promise with your friends, family, and co-workers. Together we can be a shining light in a very dark world.
