How You Were Freed From Sin

What gave power to sin?

“…the strength of sin is the law.” 
I Corinthians 15:56

How is sin imputed? 
“For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.” 
Romans 5:13 

What was the problem with the law? 
“But sin, taking opportunity by the commandment, produced in me all manner of evil desire… And the commandment, which was to bring life, I found to bring death. For sin, taking occasion by the commandment, deceived me, and by it killed me.”
Romans 7:‭8-11

How did Jesus free us from sin?
“having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross.” 
Colossians 2:14

What happens when there is no law? 
“…for where there is no law there is no transgression.”
Romans 4:15 

Does God remember sin in the new covenant?
“For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.”
Hebrews 8:12

If the Son sets you free, you are extremely, exceedingly, tremendously, immensely, decidedly, remarkably free!

White and Gold Dress? Try This Trick!

image

I thought this dress drama was dumb (still do). Then it was fascinating. Then it freaked me out.

After examining this dress for an amount of time I’m embarrassed to disclose, I now see its true colors. Originally, all I could see was white and gold. I would have said that you had to get your eyes checked if you saw anything different. I thought the dress was actually blue and black but the picture’s colors had been changed for it to look white and gold. Who knows?

I tried to look at it in different angles. White and gold. Under different light. White and gold. Even tried to edit it to manipulate the colors. White and gold. Anyone who sees blue and black needs an eye exam, seriously.

Then, I tried something that would change the way I see this dress forever. Once you see it blue and black, you cannot unsee it! Try it for yourself.

Cover the picture with your hand. Slowly undress the picture starting from the left side until all you can see is the dress from the dark shadow line under her left shoulder. You should only see the darkest part of the dress on the left. Blur your eyes, squint if you have to and try to see blue and black. Once you do, slowly reveal the rest of the dress going right. You should see a blue and black dress now.

What the…? Playing tricks on you, huh? I can now see it both ways. If I stop looking at it and come back to it, I can see white and gold, but it’s hard to unsee blue and black once you have.
