Sin will have no mastery over you, because you are not under law but under grace. — Rom 6:14 NET
What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Absolutely not!—So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, so that you could be joined to another, to the one who was raised from the dead, to bear fruit to God.—I am not free from God’s law but under the law of Christ.—The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ!
The law of the life-giving Spirit in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.—“Everyone who practices sin is a slave of sin…. So if the son sets you free, you will be really free.”
Stand firm, then, and do not be subject again to the yoke of slavery.
Rom 6:15, Rom 7:4, 1 Cor 9:21, 1 Cor 15:56-57, Rom 8:2, John 8:34, John 8:36, Gal 5:1
He is a double-minded individual, unstable in all his ways. — Jas 1:8 NET
“No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for the kingdom of God.”
The one who approaches God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.—He must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.—“Whatever you pray and ask for, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
So we are no longer to be children, tossed back and forth by waves and carried about by every wind of teaching by the trickery of people who craftily carry out their deceitful schemes. But practicing the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into Christ, who is the head.
“Remain in me.”—Be firm. Do not be moved! Always be outstanding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.
Luke 9:62, Heb 11:6, Jas 1:6-7, Mark 11:24, Eph 4:14-15, John 15:4, 1 Cor 15:58
