The Law of LifeMarch 15, 2010
Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death. Romans 8:1-2
When Jesus was nailed to the Cross, He paid the price for humanity, and you were freed from sin! The old law of sin and death has been displaced by the higher and better law of life.
Walk in this new life. “Just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious [power] of the Father, so we too might [habitually] live and behave in newness of life” (Romans 6:4b AMP).
Physicists make it their life to study the laws governing the natural world. They now know that the law of thrust and lift will supersede the law of gravity. As followers of Jesus, we invest our lives to understand those spiritual laws that have overridden the law of sin and death. We look in the mirror of the Word to learn what the new things are of this life in Christ Jesus: who Jesus is, what we have as a result of Him, and what we can do in Him. Then, we can carry these revelations to our daily living.
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
God has given you an abundant new life, but the enemy wants to steal, kill and destroy your vision so you don’t walk in it (John 10:10). The gravitational pull of lesser things can keep you in a place where you aren’t soaring to your full potential. Delving into God’s Word, praying in tongues, and maintaining a grateful heart are some key things that will help you understand the law of life and bring victory to your thoughts, words, and actions. Don’t stay victimized by gravity; break out, because the higher law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free!
It’s good to know Jesus.
