POWER OVER SIN – Saturday June 13th 2020
Memorise: For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. Matthew 26:28
Read: Galatians 3:20-26 (KJV)
20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but God is one.
21 Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.
22 But the scripture hath concluded all under sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be given to them that believe.
23 But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which should afterwards be revealed.
24 Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.
25 But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.

Bible in one year: 2nd Chronicles 6-7, Psalm 136, Hymn: Sing hymn 30
Message: -
Many Christian think the law (the Old Testament) is no longer of any effect and thus behave carelessly, claiming that, because they are born again, grace cover all their sins. Paul clarifies this in the following Scriptures;

Open Heaven 13 June 2020 – Power Over Sin 

“But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the Faith which should afterwards be revealed. Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster. For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.”
Galatians 3:23-26

Open Heaven 13 June 2020: [Saturday] – Power Over Sin 

The old covenant protected the people against temporal death, poverty, all forms of suffering and bondage but the new delivers eternally (Matthew 1:21; 26:28). Your ability to overcome sin is proof that you are a child of God. John the Beloved corroborated this when he said in 1st John 3:9 that “Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin; for his seed remaineth in him; and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.”

Are we really children of God? If we still wallow in sin, we remain in the old dispensation and the letter of the law will punish us here and in the afterlife.

Open Heaven 13 June 2020 Saturday: Action Point

The superiority of the new covenant over the old however is that, while the latter puts constraints to prevent sins, the new gives power over it. Romans 6:14 says: “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.”
We therefore have the assurance that grace will work for us. Romans 6:1 however caution that we cannot remain in sin, expecting grace to abound. Rather grace empowers us to conquer sin.
You do not have any excuse to abide in sin.
Action Point
Tap into the power of the new covenant to overcome sin.
