KEY SCRIPTURE: Romans 8:2 KJV “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death”.
Life in the Spirit is not an abstract life of strange imaginations, but a real Christian experience that brings success and fulfillment to all who understand and live by the word. Anyone who is initiated into Christ by the new birth receives an exchange of natures. Before we were saved a principle or law worked in us. It is called the law of sin and death. This is what Apostle Paul wrote about in Rom 7:18 KJV “For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not” .This very scripture refers to the law of sin and death that works in all those who have not come to faith in Jesus.
The law of sin and death is the power that causes men to continually fail in the face of temptation and trials. This law is not just a weakness of the human body but an inheritance of Adamic nature (Rom 5:12). At our conversion, the law of sin and death is put away, and we receive another law that begins to operate in us. This is the law of the Spirit of life. Life begins to work in every aspect of our being where there was death. The first area of impact is the ability to lead a righteous life. We receive the power to do right. Become aware of your absolute victory over wrong ways. The same law defeats diseases.
One story that comes to mind is about evangelist John G Lake, when a very contagious disease called bubonic plague broke out in South Africa. One gets infected the moment he comes into contact with an infected person. John G Lake used to handle the sick and prayed for a number of them. He never got infected. A medical team took a sputum sample and observed it under a microscope and found a number of the pathogens alive within the sample. When part of the same sample was placed on his hand and observed under the same microscope all the bacteria were dead. They asked him, how come that, the bacteria die on contact with your hand. He answered, there is a law of the Spirit of life at work in me, that kills the bacteria. This can be your experience if you would believe.
I am born of God. I have received the law of the spirit of life. I am a winner over death in any form. I live a life of uprightness. The law of life destroys the power of every disease in Jesus name.
2Timothy 1:10 Easy English “So now he has shown us how very kind he is. He has shown us because Christ Jesus has come. And it is Christ who saves us. He has destroyed death’s power over us. And he has shown that we can live with God always. We can have bodies that never die. He has shown that also. He has shown this by the good news that he brought”.
Ephesians 1:19, 20 WEB “and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might, which he worked in Christ, when he raised him from the dead and made him to sit at his right hand in the heavenly places”.
One thought on “LIFE IN THE SPIRIT: THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE”
Appreciate the share. As Jesus declare… “Ye do err not knowing the scriptures NOR the power of God”.
