Romans 7:5 (KJV) For when we were in the flesh, the motions of sins, which were by the law, did work in our members to bring forth fruit unto death.

The law operates within the domain of the mind and all this is ruled by the knowledge of Good and evil. So even though in the old creation, a man under the law of God is far better than a man ruled by his flesh and native impulses or any other human code. When the new creation came, it became an aberration for people to still cling to a life ruled by the law when they can live lives ruled by the Spirit [of life].

Because we are still in a body of flesh, an understanding of the law would be a guide to help us know what the Spirit would never lead us to do, but our hope of salvation should never be based on our ability to keep certain rules and regulations, but based on our relationship with the Spirit of the living God. The earnest/guarantee of our salvation is the Holy Spirit, not the law (see Ephesians 1:14).

Those who subscribed to the law only found their minds trained to be more sophisticated and refined in their approach to sin. Because of the flesh, the law did not have the power to kill sin in our hearts so it only helped to make it such that even though we are sinners we would be feeling self-righteous because we have convinced ourselves that we have not broken God's law.

Go into today remembering that the biggest hindrance to a life of grace is dependence on our ability to keep God's laws as the basis of our justification.

Prayer: Lord, help me to live in the Spirit and bring forth fruits unto God (Romans 7:4).
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
