In Christ Alone - Arrival Series [5-31-20]

Updated: Jun 24, 2020


Here's where we've been. We've been spending time…considerable and important time…in Romans 8:1-4. These verses speak to us…they speak about us…they speak about Jesus…and they speak about God. These few verses give us the right way to describe our lives before Christ and now, in Christ. In other words, Romans 8:1-4 gives us a world view that accurately paints the picture of how God saves us from our sin and the trajectory of our lives once we know we are saved.


Here are those verses again:

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

We have specifically focused on verse 3:

For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh.

We looked at two keys points within verse 3:


1. God condemned sin in the flesh.

2. He did this by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin.


Today, we're going to focus on two more key points:


3. The law was not able save us from sin.<
