{Set Free to Walk in Newness of Life}

The believer has been set free from the bondage of the law. now lets walk in newness of life!In Romans 7 Paul is going to continue to remind the Beloved of their new position in Christ. He is going to use the analogy of marriage to guide us to an understanding of what God in Christ has accomplished for us. In Romans 6:3 Paul asked this question, “Do You Not Know?” Again in Romans 7:1 he asks, “Do you not know?” Galatians 5:1 teaches;

{Did You Know Death is Worthy of Celebrating?}

I do not normally celebrate a death. How about you? But according to the Bible there is great reason to celebrate our death. Please join Conforming To The truth as we study inductively through Romans. Print your Free Bible study today.As I was reading through Romans 6:1-11  in preparation for this post, I noticed the words die, death, died and dead appeared  in 9 of the eleven verses.

We need to know and understand what Christ has accomplished on the cross! Our discussion will center around our being set  apart unto God and making us aware of the death that has taken place in us at our conversion. Continue reading
