Once again, today's text shows us that we have been "released from the law."

And we are now slaves, as if handcuffed to Him, Righteousness!

4 Therefore, my brothers, you also were put to death to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be married to another—to Him who was raised from the dead, so that we might bear fruit to God. 5 For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions aroused through the law were at work in our members to bear fruit to death. 6 But now we were released from the law, having died in that to which we were held fast, so that we should serve as slaves in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.

Today we continue our look in Romans, and we are confronted once again by the Spirit, "You are slaves to whom you obey.(6:16)

Romans 7:1-3
1 Or do you not know, brothers (for I speak to those knowing the law), that the law has jurisdiction over a man as long as he lives? 2 For the woman who is under a man has been bound by law to the living husband. But if the husband should die, she is released from the law of the husband. 3 So then, while the husband is living, she will be called an adulteress if she becomes married to a different husband; but if her husband should die, she is free from the law, so that she is not an adulteress, having become married to a different husband.

This text is teaching that the Law's purpose is to lead us to the cross.

Free and Slave.

Romans 6:16 tells us that we are slaves to whom we obey, whether sin resulting in death, or obedience resulting in righteousness.
