Experiencing God The New Way of the Spirit
The New Way of the Spirit
6 But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.
|| Romans 7:6 || NLT ||
The Bible is taking us somewhere, on a journey towards intimacy with the Father. The journey begins with the law, with Torah. Never forget that the Law is a good thing, a gift from God. But it is only the beginning of the journey. Psalm 1 represents this beginning; it is a barocha to those who keep the law. Job 1 also represents the beginning of the journey. Job is a "psalm 1 guy."
But we are supposed to move on, on the path of what Paul refers to as the "New Way of the Spirit." We are going somewhere with this walk with Jesus. We are moving towards an undreamed of intimacy with the God who loves us so much He wants to be married to us.
