Romans 7:7 “What shall we say then? Is the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt not covet.”

While the law reveals to men what sin is, it is not enough to conquer sin, it is just like identifying a problem without solving it. The solution is what grace brought. We need dominion over the law so as not to live only by the knowledge of sin but to overcome it.

Where the law is at work, grace is limited. You need to come to the realization of the full potential of the grace of God. Grace does not just help you manage sin, it gives you an edge over it. The truth remains that the flesh in itself finds pleasure in sin, the law crucifies it, but grace exalts the soul beyond the grip of sin.

Talk to God: Father, help me to realise the full potential of your grace in my life in Jesus name, amen.
