Sin has co-opted one of God’s very good gifts to use it against us. The gift I’m talking about? The commands of God. Let’s discover the role of God’s law in our lives, and how indwelling sin uses it against us—

1. Christ freed you to pursue godliness through him rather than by law-keeping (vs. 1-4).

2. Now that you are united to Christ, you have all the resources you need to pursue godliness (vs. 4-6).

3. The Law was never designed to save you but to expose your need to be saved by the Savior (vs.7-13).
