THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE!
For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2).
The law of the spirit of life is the law that gives life to mankind. This is the law of Jesus Christ from the New Testament in life. Without the law of the spirit of life, man would have been totally condemned and alienated from the presence of God eternally in life. This is the law of life that introduced grace to mankind in life. The Bible says in the opening text that the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to operate in the law of the spirit of life. The law of the spirit of life is the same law that brought salvation to mankind through Jesus Christ, the Son of God in life (John 8:36). Hence, the law of the spirit of life is absolutely the law of grace, mercy and salvation to mankind through Christ Jesus in life forever.
The Law of Moses could not give life to mankind, but rather put man in perpetual bondage of sin in life. The Law of Moses is the law of judgment, death and condemnation in life. That is why the Bible says in Galatians 3:10, “For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.” Therefore, the Law of Moses brought curse to humanity because there is absolutely no one qualified to obey it in totality in life. Whoever lives his life in the Law of Moses is indeed cursed, and it takes the law of the spirit of life in Jesus Christ for such a one to experience total and absolute freedom in life forever.
But the coming of Jesus Christ ushered in the law of the spirit of life. This law is characterized by grace and it is neither by works nor merits in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 2:8-9, “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.” In fact, it takes the law of the spirit of grace in Christ Jesus for one to be totally set free from the Law of Moses in life. The law of the spirit of life is centered on grace and faith in God. It is the law that gives absolute life to mankind by divine grace, and that is the reason why no Christian is ever permitted to boast in life forever.
Daily Tip: A Christian should take advantage of the law of the spirit of life which is centered on grace and faith in God through Jesus Christ in life forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Curse is everyone who hangs on a tree” (Galatians 3:13).
