Scriptural Proportions

To the extent we are alive we are under the law. Romans 7:1

To the extent we are under the law we stand condemned. James 2:10; Romans 8:2; 2 Corinthians 3:6

To the extent we stand condemned we infer condemnation in the Scriptures. Matthew 23:28

To the extent we infer condemnation in the Scriptures we condemn ourselves and others. Romans 2:1

To the extent we condemn ourselves and others we are bound. Romans 8:1; Galatians 3:3; 2 Peter 2:19b

To the extent we are bound we are distracted from Jesus Christ. 1 John 5:21

To the extent we are distracted from Jesus Christ we cease to grow in His grace and knowledge. 2 Peter 3:18

To the extent we cease to grow in His grace and knowledge we fail to accept the sacrifice. Romans 8:3; Hebrews 12:2

To the extent we fail to accept the sacrifice, we fail to receive what He has done for us. Romans 8:3

To the extent we fail to receive what He has done for us, we struggle in our faith. James 1:8

To the extent we struggle in our faith, we fail to rest in Christ. Matt 11:28-30; Heb.4:1

To the extent we fail to rest in Christ, we live for ourselves. Ephesians 2:1; Matthew 10:39

To the extent we live for ourselves, we are alive. Galatians 2:19,20

Romans 8:3
For God has done what the Law could not do, [its power] being weakened by the flesh [the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, [God] condemned sin in the flesh [subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice],

Hebrews 2:12
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God

Matthew 11:28-30
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Hebrews 4:1
Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands, let us be careful that none of you be found to have fallen short of it

As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins,
