Part 4 - The Application of Faith
Overview: Reckoning Grace through Christ
A fourth area of reckoning is the position that the believer has under the rule of Christ. The believer has been taken out from under the rule of the Mosaic law and placed under the rule and grace of Jesus Christ. For fruitfulness in Christ and deliverance from the power of sin, there is no more important element of faith. Only in reckoning the grace-filled reign of Christ over oneself can one find that, as Paul says, "sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace." The believer who had been married to the law is now, through the death of Christ, married to the risen Christ.
