Fellowship in the Light

Fellowship in the Light
By Norman P. GrubbTo put it briefly, Romans 7 is not the chapter in which the believer lives. We live indwelt by Christ in Romans 8. Romans 7 is when we forget that Christ lives in us, and we try to live – to fulfill the law – by our own strength.  But independent self is sin, therefore the moment we forget the indwelling Christ, and try to live by independent self, sin is at work in us, and we are under its dominion. Therefore the point to remember is that as that chapter tells us, we are dead to the law; that means we are not independent people trying to fulfill God’s laws. We are a new people, with the Law-Giver living in us, Christ Himself. We only enter into the bondage of Romans 7, when we forget that fact and we must learn to turn quickly by the cleansing blood to our abiding place in Romans 8. From Knight of Faith Volume II
