The law of life

Romans 8:1-2 Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, 2because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.

There is a law of death and there is a law of life. Every person on this planet is bound to certain laws. Laws to pay taxes, laws about getting married, laws about housing, and natural laws of gravity, ageing, etc. etc. No one can escape being part of all these laws. Our lives are defined by laws.

The law of sin and death says that I am bound to sin, and bound to death. Eternal death and seperation from God. The law of the Spirit of life says that I am free from eternal condemnation. I am accepted as a beloved son or daughter. I am part of the Family. I can put my feet up, and dive into the fridge in my Father’s house: stockpiled with grace for living.

The law of life has the last laugh.
