Romans 6:14 is one of the key verses on Christian living in the Bible.
The believer who fully grasps the meaning of "you are not under the law, but under grace" will understand the secret of becoming all God intends for us to be.
Tonight we'll look at a number of other passages that explain this important truth.

Romans 6:14.
We're in this section on sanctification.
We've been looking at positional truth -- truth that God says about us and how to live the Christian life.
/"For sin will not be your master because you are not under the Law but under grace."/
That's a very short verse but we could spend this session and probably next week on this verse.
There is so much behind this concept.
As a Christian you are not under the Law but you are under grace.
What does that mean?
Last week we looked at the first part of chapter 6.
We said that we were free from sin.
The reason is because we are in Christ and Christ died on the cross and we died with Him.
When He died to sin we died to sin with Him.
This is a difficult concept and we'll keep coming back to it in the next few weeks.
Tonight I want us to look at another freedom -- not just freedom from sin.
We said that freedom from sin means that after I become a Christian I don't have to sin any more.
I don't have to automatically give in to it.
That doesn't mean I'm going to be perfect but it means I now have a new power to stop those bad habits and those things in my life I didn't have control over before I became a believer.
*I.
WHAT IS THE LAW?*
 
Tonight I want us to look at freedom from the Law.
We are not under the Law but under grace.
First, we need to start off by saying, "What is the Law?"
The Old Testament describes three different types of Law: 
 
       1) Ceremonial Law -- sacrifices, rituals, offerings, food restrictions.
All of those things in the Old Testament that you read and think, "What does that mean?
Why did they do that?"
2) Civil Law --  the part that has to do with the nation of Israel itself, the rules of government, regulations for the nation, the way the country is to be operated, governmental Laws, judgements, judicial Laws.
 
       3) Moral Law -- this is the part we're most familiar with.
The Ten Commandments is the key example of moral Law.
God has some ethical standards of behavior that He wants us to follow.
So when we talk about the Law in general we're actually talking about three different parts:  moral Law, civil Law and ceremonial Law.
*II.
WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE LAW?*
 
Why was the Law given?
You can't just make a blanket statement.
That's why we need to study it tonight.
In the New Testament there are at least seven different descriptions of the Law.
Seven analogies, seven illustrations that illustrate a different purpose of the Law.
You need to understand the purposes of the Law so you'll realize that as a Christian you're not under the Law but under grace.
If you understand this it's going to make a tremendous impact in your life.
We're going to look outside of Romans to explain what Romans 6:14 looks at.
Fortunately we have a lot of material written about this very verse.
Paul wrote an entire other book simply to explain this verse.
That book is called Galatians.
The book of Galatians basically explains Romans 6:14.
1.
Galatians 5:1 is the very first description of the Law.
/"It is for freedom that Christ has set us free.
Stand firm then and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."/
Underline "yoke of slavery".
If you'd read the previous two chapters you'd find out that the yoke of slavery he's talking about is the Law.
The first picture that we have of the Law is that it is a yoke.
A yoke is put on cattle.
It's purpose is to control an animal.
The purpose of the Law is to control us.
Not to change us but to control us.
