<023> Thesis:   Sooner or later, one's living boils down to an active "faith". Introduction:   In our last study we pointed out that this paragraph begins with an exhortation to refuse to allow The Sin to be a "king" within the context of our "mortal" bodies and ends with a promise that "Sin" shall not succeed as a "lord" over us. The fulfillment of the exhortation is rooted in the "hupakouo" concept in Paul's theology of "hearing; reasoning; concluding; and acting". The fulfillment of the promise is rooted in Paul's concept of "the grace of God". This evening we are going to consider where the "hupakouo" concept takes us in terms of its final element: taking action.
