Set Free from the Law of Sin and Death

Romans 8:2–4 (ESV)
For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

If we have crucified the law of sin in our bodies and now live by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. We have not abandoned the laws of God but live according to them by faith through Jesus Christ.

Our battle is not against the laws of God, but against the law of Sin and Death that have usurped the law of the Spirit of life and twisted it into an act of the flesh through which we come under condemnation and judgment.

But if we live by faith in our Messiah, Jesus, then we are free to fulfill the law of the Spirit of Life in him and pursue peace with God.  In pursuing that peace we also pursue the ways of God.  Not for the purpose of sacrifice, but for the purpose of celebrating and worshiping Yehovah.  In doing this we are seeking to fulfill the instructions He gives us in both the Old and New Testament through peace, joy, and love.  Not though duty and sacrifice, wherein the law of sin found its power to bring death.

We are always under “a law.” But it is our choice which law we live under. Whether it be the law of the Spirit, which brings eternal life. Or the law of sin and death, which brings eternal death and separation from God, and eventually the Lake of Fire, and this latter because we have chosen to follow the ways of Satan, in order to gratify the lusts our own flesh.  Resulting in rejecting the ways of God.

If you have not yet committed your life to Yehovah (God) through Jesus, now is the best time to do it.  If you believe in your heart that Jesus died for you and God raised him from the dead, then declare him to be your LORD!  Speak it out loud, so that all the devils of hell can hear you that you no longer are under their control.  Confess: “I believe Jesus died for me and God raised him from the dead.  I now make Jesus my Lord and Savior!”  If you did this, you are now set free in the law of the Spirit of Life and under the Lordship and protection of Jesus.  Mark today as your new birthday, then find a Bible and start reading and spending time developing a relationship with Him through prayer, and drop us a note so we can celebrate with you.

Therefore, if we have taken on Christ, then let us pursue with PASSION the ways of God and glorify him in our lives by celebrating and rejoicing in him by living our lives as we are now in His Kingdom.  And if we are in His Kingdom, then let us follow after the ways of that kingdom as a righteous citizen of Heaven and receive the blessings promised through Jesus our Lord!

Live in Yehovah’s LOVE!
