For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death (Rom. 8:2 KJV)
The verse above establishes our victory in Christ over the circumstances of this present life. The law of the Spirit of life that is operational in Christ has lifted us above the law of sin and death that operates in the world. In summary, we are above the issues of this present life!
Let me quickly point out a mystery hidden in the words of the verse above. It goes back to the creation of man in Genesis 1 and 2. When God formed the human body, it laid on the ground lifeless. It could not move because it did not have life. When God breathed the spirit into the body, Adam jumped up and his body and mind started functioning! When man dies, the body again becomes lifeless and decays. When Adam sinned in the Garden, something happened to his spirit and his body became susceptible to disease and aging. That means as long as his spirit was still upright, it kept the body above disease or aging. The spirit in man determines the condition and function of his body and mind.
The human spirit that was upright was able to keep the body and mind from experiencing sickness or death in any way. In Christ, we have been given the Holy Spirit, God’s very Spirit! That Spirit determines the state and functioning of our lives, and lifts us above the laws that govern the death in this fallen world!
I want you to declare the words of the verse above out loud. Say it again and again as you allow them to sink into your spirit. Put your name in there!
APPLY THE WORD
It is our responsibility to learn to walk by the Spirit. He will make us live a higher life that is in Christ for us!
Thank the Lord for the wonderful blessing of the law of the Spirit at work in us.
