Rightly Dividing…Pt.3…

Study with Bill Gillham And Reference To C.S. Lewis…

The power of sin in the law”… we have to realize the fact that law is not made for a righteous man.. ( new creatures are righteous)… but for those who are Lawless and rebellious… for the ungodly and sinners… ( remember we are Saints who sin)… for the Unholy.. and profane.. for those who kill their father’s or mother’s… for murderers and immoral men.. and homosexuals… kidnappers…and liars and perjurers… and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching… (1 Timothy 1; 9, 10)…

* The Law is used to convict people of sin and point them to Christ…

* Always look to God’s grace…

* We have an…IDENTITY…IN…Christ… we can’t EARN anything…. that does not mean we are not to strive to do good works… I think good works would be evident in any believer…

CS Lewis said… in MERE CHRISTIANITY….” If, somewhere upon the road of life, you discover you have taken a wrong turn.. the quickest way forward is to turn around and go back… or if somewhere along life’s Road…you find yourself traveling with a group which is taken a wrong turn.. the first man to turn around and go back… is the most Progressive”….

* My opinion is that you cannot adopt the posture that a born-again person…attains… holiness through performance…

The Word says however…The Flesh… ( not the old man)… sets its desire against the spirit… and the spirit against the flesh… Galatians 5:17…

* it’s not our old sin nature we struggle with… it’s the…POWER OF SIN…WORKING THROUGH THE OLD WORLDLY WAYS..

* you will never get good solid victory in this battle we all experience… until you see by his Word… and appropriate the truth… that the old man literally died and Christ…it’s not positional…its literal…dead men tell no Tales… those…”tales… we experience moment-by-moment.. are being offered up to your mind… by the deceiver of the Brethren…through your flesh… don’t be deceived…Frank…

HATS OFF TO BILL GILLHAM…. and the great CS Lewis…. commentary and arrangement by me….
