1. FAITH FREES US FOR ______________ LIFE
 
For when we were in the flesh, the sinful passions aroused through the law were working in us, to bear fruit for death. But now we have been released from the law, since we have died to what held us, so that we may serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the old letter of the law. Romans 7:5-6
 
But now he has reconciled you by his physical body through his death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before him— Colossians 1:22 
 
For through the law I died to the law, so that I might live for God. I have been crucified with Christ, and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.  Galatians 2:19–20
 
…to take off, your former way of life, the old self that is corrupted by deceitful desires, to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on, the new self, the one created according to God’s likeness in righteousness and purity of the truth. Ephesians 4:22–24
 
2. FAITH FREES US SO THE BIBLE CAN ____________ US
 
What should we say then? Is the law sin? Absolutely not! On the contrary, I would not have known sin if it were not for the law. For example, I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, Do not covet. Romans 7:7
 
The instruction of the Lord is perfect, renewing one’s life; the testimony of the Lord is trustworthy, making the inexperienced wise. Psalm 19:7 
 
But since that faith has come, we are no longer under a guardian, for through faith you are all sons of God in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:25–26
 
3. FAITH FREES US NOT TO BE _________ BUT _________
 
For in my inner self I delight in God’s law, but I see a different law in the parts of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and taking me prisoner to the law of sin in the parts of my body. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with my mind I myself am serving the law of God, but with my flesh, the law of sin. Romans 7:22-24
 
Then I said:  Woe is me for I am ruined because I am a man of unclean lips and live among a people of unclean lips, and because my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of Armies. Isaiah 6:5 
 
And when you were dead in trespasses and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, he made you alive with him and forgave us all our trespasses. Colossians 2:13
 
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus Romans 8:1
