The Old Covenant is a stepping-stone to the New Covenant. We must know the Old in light of the New. Today on A Study In The Word, Evangelist Jimmy Swaggart and panel read Romans 5:12 discussing how sin entered into man at Adam’s fall therefore all men and women are born with a sin nature. There are four agents of sin that we need to recognize; the sin nature, the world, the flesh, and the devil; these are all addressed by Christ and His finished work on the Cross. Jesus Christ shed His blood to pay the penalty for the sin of mankind; His death also takes care of the power of sin in our lives. When we keep our faith anchored in the Cross of Christ, the Holy Spirit will move on our lives to help us live out a victorious Christian life.
