Each of us should know that in order to be saved from the penalty of sin, we have to be clothed with a righteousness by faith that comes only from God. This righteousness does not come from obedience. Rather, Jesus grants righteousness to us when we become willing to love God with all our heart, mind, and soul and our neighbor as our self. True love for God and others fulfills the demands of the law.
The Holy Spirit wants us to look often into the perfect law of God to see how pure love for God and man is expressed. Every born again person knows the problem with sin. We can't fulfill the intent of the law all of the time.
Paul wrote in Rom 7:15, “I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do.”
In other words, born again Christians have two natures that war against each other. Sometimes the carnal nature wins. This happened in king David's case. Sometimes, the spiritual nature wins. Born again Christians understand this warfare. This is why the seal of God is so wonderful. This series was recorded in 1998. Start the video series by clicking on the video below.
