ROMANS 6-8
By Norman P. Grubb

THE CHANGE

Now at the summit there is no condemnation. We are freed from that false self guilt, for there is no wrong human self! We are Spirit people in outer bodies. There is nothing to condemn (Rom 8:1). Our human selves are fixed expressions of the Deity Self, where we were formerly fixed expressions of that false deity self. That is the change.

Law (principle) is the way a thing works, and works no other way. We used to be under Satan’s law with no escape, and now we are under Christ’s law with no escape. There is this change of governing principle controlling our lives.

Strong terms! (Rom 8:2). That makes it easy and normal to walk this new way. On Calvary, Christ put the old sin indweller behind bars on death row (condemned sin in the flesh), from where he is able only to shout at us. That old law standard, which had seemed unattainable, is now our normal way of living — “the righteousness of the law fulfilled in us” (Rom 8:3,4). This is the Sermon on the Mount top standard of living, and the one who lives it in us is “the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.”
