There are times when natural beauty reassures us of the reality of God’s presence…aka freedom from the curse of sin. Although the Law was given to show us what sin entailed, it also provided opportunities for sin to abound. If we die to sin and are given new life through the resurrection power of Christ, then we are free to live a life of love. Living in love really means fulfilling all law…we live love because the old system of law no longer has the power to bind us in an awkward way to sin! – Teresa #deadtosinbutalivetoChrist
Romans 7: 1-3 (NLT)
Now, dear brothers and sisters[a]—you who are familiar with the law—don’t you know that the law applies only while a person is living? 2 For example, when a woman marries, the law binds her to her husband as long as he is alive. But if he dies, the laws of marriage no longer apply to her. 3 So while her husband is alive, she would be committing adultery if she married another man. But if her husband dies, she is free from that law and does not commit adultery when she remarries.
