6 But [de] now [nuni] we are delivered [katargeo] from [apo] the law [nomos], that being dead [apothnesko][apothnesko] wherein [en][hos] we were held [katecho]; that [hoste] we [hemas] should serve [douleuo] in [en] newness [kainotes] of spirit [pneuma], and [kai] not [ou] in the oldness [palaiotes] of the letter [gramma]. KJV-Interlinear
6 But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code. ESV
Without salvation, your life is bound to the letter of the law. Without a functional spiritual life, your life is bound to the letter of the law. Without the work of Christ, you have no way out from under the letter of the law, and therefore your destiny would be only eternal condemnation, or something that would be impossible for you to free yourself from.
But with the work of Christ, which paid for all the costs of death and sin, we are now free, by means of faith, from the chains of the law.
And now that we are free, it would not make sense to try to return to the human works pattern described by the law, when we have so much more by means of grace.
Therefore, it would only make sense that given a new life, a person would work within the scope of that new life, rather than return to the old habits of the scope of the old life of the sin nature.
Unfortunately, too many people are too lazy, or to indifferent, or simply not interested in the mandates of grace, because they are blocked by their own self-induced arrogance, which prevents them from listening and learning and advancing in their spiritual life.
It is far easier to get caught up in the emotion, and the clichés, and the entertaining aspects of Christianity, and end up with nothing, than it is to knuckle down and learn Bible doctrine, word by word, verse by verse, precept by precept, in order to advance to something more.
These studies, are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, that is easily accessible, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.
And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.
To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.
The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.
But you have to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.
