Memorization Monday

Monday is the day I introduce the verse of Scripture be memorized this week. We are going through Romans and memorizing key verses.

Romans 8:3 For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,

Verse 2 had said that the the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death. Sin has its natural consequences. Sin naturally brings forth death. There are several deaths referred to in Scripture, but the "worst" one is eternal death which separates us from God forever.

What Jesus did for us is that he came as a human being, in human flesh. In verse 3 it is described as the likeness of sinful flesh. He looked like the rest of us, but never sinned. Because of sin, he came and lived a perfect life in a human body and then died our death in our place. Thus he condemned sin in the flesh.
