The righteous requirements of the law. “The impossible requirements of the law,” some might say. “I have gotten rid of most all of the sins in my life. I have tried! But there are still a couple lingering sins that I will probably never be able to completely rid myself of.”
ONLY WITH THE HELP OF THE HOLY SPIRIT HELPER
Exactly! Those are the sins that can only be sent packing with the help of the Holy Spirit Helper (Romans 8:2-4).
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son ... That the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit (Romans 8:2-4).
GAME-CHANGING THEOLOGY, LIFE-CHANGING WALK
If I am able to rid myself of all of the sins in my life on my own, what need do I have of the Holy Spirit? If I am able to rid myself of all of the sins in my life on my own, how does my theology stack up when examined under the light of Galatians 5:16 (or Romans 8:4, or Romans 8:13, or Ephesians 3:20)?
I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lusts of the flesh (Galatians 5:16).
Could it be not so out of the ordinary to have a lingering sin or two in my life that I cannot rid myself of on my own? Could it be not so out of the ordinary to have a lingering sin or two in my life that requires the help of the Holy Spirit Helper (John 16:7) to eradicate? Game-changing theology for the genuinely born-again believer still struggling to fully overcome an addiction. Game-changing theology—with the promise of a life-changing walk—if followed through to its logical “Galatians 5:16 conclusion.”
A GAME-CHANGING BOOK HAS ARRIVED
In A Way of Escape, readers learn how to fulfill the righteous requirements of the law in their war against the flesh. Readers learn how to step up the degree to which they “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16). They learn how to build a library of Spirit-anointed, flesh-diffusing apps. Apps that are uniquely fitted to them, and their unique Spirit-filling triggers (Ephesians 5:18b-19).
The still-struggling now have another option. The still-struggling now have fresh hope for discovering that long-sought-after way of escape from sin and temptation (I Corinthians 10:13). A way that—because it is wholly Spirit-powered—does not require enlisting the aid of an accountability partner or group. Truly, a game-changer!
