Freed by the Law of the Spirit of Life (1)
(RcV) Rom. 8:1 There is now then no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. (2) For the law of the Spirit of life has freed me in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and of death.
Words of Ministry
[Part 1 of 3]
The way to victory is to be freed from the law of sin and of death. Many Christians see the Spirit of life setting them free from only sin and death. They do not see the law of the Spirit of life freeing them from the law of sin and of death. When the Lord opens their eyes, they will see that sin and death are a law and that the Holy Spirit is a law as well. When we realize that the life-giving Spirit is a law, we will jump up and exclaim, "Thank God, Hallelujah!" Man's will cannot overcome the law of sin, but the law of the Spirit of life has freed us from the law of sin and of death. Only the law of the Spirit of life can free man from the law of sin. When God grants us mercy to see that the Holy Spirit is a law, we will experience a great change. Many people only see the Spirit of life giving us life. They do not see that the Holy Spirit is another law in us, and that we can be freed spontaneously from the law of sin and of death when we trust in this law. There is no effort involved for this law to deliver us from the other law. We do not need to will, to do anything, or to hold on to the Holy Spirit. If we fear that the Lord's Spirit will not work in us unless we rush in to help Him in times of temptation, we have not seen the Spirit as a law within us yet. May we see that the Holy Spirit is a spontaneous law within us.
