“O unhappy and pitiable and wretched man that I am! Who will release and deliver me from [the shackles of] this body of death?”
Romans 7:24 AMPC
In this world, we have laws that are in operation. Law is a constant and always in place. But in this world, we also see corruption and ageing.
A mind that is not renewed is in line and allied with this world, and with the law of sin and death. But in Him, we have a new law in place that is in operation in us.
“I am who God’s Word says I am!”
“THEREFORE, [there is] now no condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are in Christ Jesus, who live [and] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. [John 3:18.] For the law of the Spirit of life [which is] in Christ Jesus [the law of our new being] has freed me from the law of sin and of death.”
Romans 8:1-2 AMPC
The law of the Spirit of life
- We’ve been adopted into the family of God
- We’ve been made righteous
- We’ve been justified and declared free
- We’ve been made a new creation
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”
Romans 8:11 KJV
We are to expect life in every area of our lives, as this new law is in operation in us – the law of the Spirit of life!
“I am free. I expect life!”
