Nogreaterjoy.com/Michael Pearl – Romans Series

 

  • 1.
  • Know ye not , brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth ?
  • 2.
  • For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth ; but if the husband be dead , she is loosed from the law of her husband.
  • 3.
  • So then if, while her husband liveth , she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead , she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
  • 4.
  • Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
  • 5.
  • For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
  • 6.
  • But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held ; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
  • 7.
  • What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid . Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said , Thou shalt not covet .
  • 8.
  • But sin, taking occasion by the commandment, wrought in me all manner of concupiscence. For without the law sin was dead.
  • 9.
  • For I was alive without the law once: but when the commandment came , sin revived , and I died .
  • 10.
  • And the commandment, which was ordained to life, I found to be unto death.
