A Christian is free from the law.
Rom 7:1 Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth?
Rom 7:2 For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband.
Rom 7:3 So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married to another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead, she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be married to another man.
Rom 7:4 Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
Rom 7:5 For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.
Rom 7:6 But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter.
Before you were saved you were bound to "the old man" by the law. The only way to be legally free from from this "old man" was for him to die.
Christ did this!!!
Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?
Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
Rom 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Rom 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Now your "old man is dead!!!! Christ did this for you.
"The law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth."
You are dead in Christ. The law has no more dominion over you.
"ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God."
You are dead to the law.
"But now we are delivered from the law, that being dead wherein we were held; that we should serve in newness of spirit, and not in the oldness of the letter."
You are free from the law!!!
Can the law have any effect over a dead person?
Can a dead person keep the the law?
Can a dead person beak the law?
Is a dead person even concerned with the law?
NO! NO! NO! NO!
Rom 6:14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.
You are now under Grace not law!!!
You are dead and now, free from sin and the law because of what Christ did.
Now just enjoy this freedom because you already have it.
