You Are Not Under Law, But Under Grace

The opposite of addiction is not abstinence, it’s intimacy. In Romans, Paul talks about the conflicted life ... the things I want to do I do not do, and the things I do not want to do, this I keep doing. He concludes with the question, Who will rescue me from this body of death? He doesn’t ask what, but who. He is crying out for a Savior. The Holy Spirit is the Person and Power of Christ living in us. Paul uses the phrase, “in Christ” consistently to illustrate the deep intimacy we can have with God.
