Not Under the Law But Not Lawless

posted in: Daily Stream | 0

1 Corinthians 9:21 (NET) To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God’s law but under the law of Christ) to gain those free from the law.

When Ronke got to the university, she met some ‘brethren’ who taught that believers are not under the law therefore sin no longer exists for the believer.

The result of this doctrine was that sexual immorality was rampant in that fellowship. Some members of the fellowship were cultists, and some of the ladies were call-girls.

Ronke who was brought up in the way of righteousness now started despising her upbringing and believing that her parents were not knowledgeable in the ‘mysteries of the gospel’.

She continued to say this until she had her 4th abortion and ruptured her womb. During this period, she almost died and was hospitalized for weeks. None of her fellowship sisters or brothers showed up at the hospital. The only person that kept coming was her roommate (who attended a fellowship Ronke despised because she said they were still under the law in that fellowship). This was when the scales fell off Ronke’s eyes.

In an attempt to preach to believers that they are no more under the [old covenant] law, many have preached lawlessness and produced lukewarm half-baked believers who are potent tools in the hand of the enemy against the advancement of God’s kingdom because they are a bad example and are a major hindrance to many seekers of truth from finding the truth of the gospel. This is the reason why Jesus would have preferred for such lukewarm ‘believers’ to be cold (unbelievers). At least they would not be a stumbling block (Rev 3:15-16).

Go into today remembering that even though you are not under the Old Testament law, you are not lawless but are under the law of Christ.
