People might say it is impossible to live a life free from sin and
fulfill the law like Jesus did. Although it is true that before the
death and resurrection of Jesus Christ the people were spiritually
dead and incapable of fulfilling the law, but a Christian is no longer
spiritually dead, but alive unto God and very capable of fulfilling
the law. Let's see what God's word has to say about this
Through our born-again spirit, we have the authority in Christ to
command our bodies and souls to stop sinning and get in line
with God's word. Jesus is our prototype: The works that I do
shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;
Because I go unto the Father (John 14:12). And of course,
one of the "works" was to have victory over all sin.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheth me (Philippians 4:13).
For he that is dead is freed from sin (Romans 6: 7). I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I (born-again spirit) live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me:
and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the son
of God, who loved me, and gave his life for me. (Galatians 2:20).
Without a revelation of our death to sin, then we will continue to be a
slave to sin.
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from
the law of sin and death (Romans 8: 2). According to God's word, our
sins are not imputed to us because of Christ's finished work, putting
us right back into Genesis 1 and 2. In Genesis 1 and 2 before Adam
sinned, there was no sin. It was like Heaven on earth. Jesus restored
us to a life free from sin, just like it was in the Garden of Eden. Praise
What did Jesus encourage us to pray in Matthew 6: 10b?
"Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven."
There is no sin in Heaven and there was no sin in the Garden of
Eden until the transgression. Therefore we can experience freedom
from sin on earth. How? Meditate on those scriptures that declare
our old sinful man was put to death on the cross until that truth
becomes a rhema in our hearts, pray in tongues, walk in love and
take authority over our souls and bodies in Jesus' name.
2 Peter 1: 4 tells us we can partake of God's holy divine nature
through His promises. That is why it so important to spend time
each day meditating on those promises that tell us who we are in
Christ and what our inheritance is in Christ. And of course, if we
do sin during the renewing and restoration process, there is
always 1 John 1: 7,9.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our
Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57). If we are still slaves
to sin, we certainly are not victorious. But God cannot lie,
He said we are victorious through Christ and sin will not have
dominion over us according to Romans 6:14. Hallelujah!
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities for we know not
what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh
intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered
(Romans 8:26). Love never fails (1 Corinthians 13: 8). "Behold,
I give unto you power (authority) to tread on serpents and
scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy "(Luke 10: 19a).
And we can use this authority to keep are bodies and souls in line
with God's word, free from sinning.
So, is it impossible to live a life free from the bondage and torment of
sin and fulfill God's law? All things are possible to him that
believeth (Mark 9: 23b). For with God all things are possible (Mark 10: 27b).
