The Law Stirs Up Sin

Just the other day, I was studying the word of God as I do everyday, and I heard this wonderful analogy about the law of God which made it so tangible to grasp it’s meaning.

Analogy: If you have a glass of water with sediment (Let’s call this sin) inside the glass, and left that glass for an hour, the sediment in the glass will begin to settle down to it’s bottom (let’s just call this the level of the flesh) the water atop of the glass would appear clear. Now if you begin to stir the water the sediment inside the glass will begin to surface and become visible throughout the entire glass (let’s call this manifestation).

The “Law” is the spoon that stirs the sediment (Sin) so it can be clearly seen. Now the spoon (Law) did not produce the sediment (Sin) or unholiness it just makes it seen, visible, manifested.

Our Bible tells us in (1Corinthians 15:56) ” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the “law”. The law was never designed to make us holy nor was it given to make us righteous, it is only through Jesus is holiness and righteousness provided for us, “Not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ” (Philippians 3:9). Glory to God!!

What a Savior we have in Jesus, who has set us free (Romans 8:1-2) ” Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death”.

You have been freed beloved you have a new nature, the nature of God. ” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the “New Creation” has come: The old has gone, the new is here” (2 Corinthians 5:17).

You ought to shout right now!!! “Thank You Jesus!!!
