Life in the Spirit, part 4

Passage: Romans 8:10-13
Service Type:

Looking back over the whole passage… the continuing place of the law in the Christian life should be clear. Our freedom from the law is not freedom to disobey it. On the contrary the law-obedience of the people of God is so important to God that he sent his Son to die for us and his Spirit to live in us, in order to secure it. Holiness is the fruit of trinitarian grace, of the Father sending his Son into the world and his Spirit into our hearts. (John Stott, The Message of Romans, God's Good News for the World)
