THE OLD AND NEW LAW

Rom 8:2

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.

KJV

If you find yourself in the middle of the ocean, even if you know how to swim, you can only swim for so long, before the currents conquer you; you may resist drowning in the water but not for long. The ultimate way to avoid drowning is to get rescued in a boat or ship.

The law was unable to save us. With the law, we were like men trying to resist drowning in the ocean of sin by swimming seriously; our effort could not ultimately stand the stronger waves. Jesus brought us a life boat; He brought grace and truth- the law of the spirit of life.

One of the attributes of the old law (of sin and death) is that it is dominated by a consciousness of sin and the wages of sin is death, it ultimately produced death because it validated sin.

One of the attributes of the new law is that it is dominated by a consciousness of divine life; the grace that comes from Jesus which empowers you to conquer sin and live a victorious life. Unlike the old law, it is not dominated by a sin consciousness but by a Holy Spirit consciousness.

Go into today deciding to walk in the new law of life by trusting always in Christ; depending on His grace and ignoring the old law that is dominated by sin consciousness. Let your life be dominated by fellowship with the Holy Spirit.

Prayer: heavenly father, I pray you help me walk in the spirit always. Deliver me from the old law of sin and death, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
