Seperation

Today I am reading about Seperation with the life of Paul in Romans 7. Paul takes us from discernment into freedom. Paul was a believer of 20 years and he still struggled “for what would, that do I not.” When we are following a law contrary to the Word of God we are following a different law, Satan’s law. When the Word says “Forgive your brother. ” When we hold onto that unforgiveness and bitterness toward our brother, we are in fact following a different law, a different gospel and different way of thinking from that of God. When we allow fear of guilt to rule out lives then we are affirming the gospel of fear or the gospel of guilt. We are either establishing the law of the kingdom of God or we are establishing the laws of Satan’s kingdom. (Matthew 5:24)

He may have sin, but he is not sin. Discernment into freedom requires spearation -seeing sin for what it is. You must be able to separate yourself from the sin that dwells within you. Seperating myself and my heart from the sin within, that is the day that sactificaiton begins. Dealing with this stuff for our healing and deliverance from these “yucky-puckies” that dwells within is the process of sanctificaiton. The Church must deal with the spirit of Man with the Word of God. Without separation, I have become one with the sin.

This is very good. We will finish this section next time. It is a long one. I can separate sin from the person, whether it is myself or someone else. That is freeing. I can love. I can forgive when there is seperation. Very freeing.
