“For the commandment is a lamp, and the law is light and reproof of instruction are the way of life…….thou shall shall love the Lord thy God with all your heart. And with all your soul and with your mind, and with all your strength, this is the first commandment.”(ref, pro 5*23 & Matt 12*28-30). “Therefore we are buried with Him by baptism into death; that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”(ref, Rom 6*4).
likewise reckon you also yourselves to be dead indeed into sin, but alive into God through Messiah Christ Jesus our Lord, therefore don’t let sin reign in your mortal body, that you may obey it in its lusts, therefore neither yield you members of unrighteousness into sin but yield yourselves into God. As those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness into God. For sin shall not have dominion over you for your not under the law, but under GRACE.
what then? Shall we sin, because we are not under the law but under GRACE? God forbid. You don’t know that to whom you yield yourselves your servant of whom you obeyed. But God be thanked that you were the servant of sin, but you have obeyed from heart , when He send His Son as salvation to you, Newness is await for you when you believe that Christ is your Lord, Look now your Father in Heaven can hear you. Obedience and faith in Christ is the key to answered prayers.
