Imparting life to the nations, one person at a time

November 4: The Law of the Spirit of Life

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death…to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”  – Romans 8:2, 6

Read: Luke 16:16, 17; Romans 8:1-6; I Thessalonians 5:16-19

Every human being on earth knowingly or unknowingly operates under one of the 2 laws mentioned in Romans 8:1-6. We are either under the law of sin and death if not yet born again, or we are under the law of the Spirit of life if we have invited Jesus to be our Lord and Savior. The Law of the spirit of Life breaks the curse of sin and death over our lives and positions us to enjoy the fullness of the Kingdom of God. That fullness includes some of the blessings discussed yesterday. It also guarantees longevity if we will keep our lips from evil (backbiting, slander etc); It keeps us in step through proper timing with Divine connections already prepared for us by God; It gives us the upper-hand over darkness through the light which is in us. And because we have received Dominion in Christ, we should never be enslaved by the power of Satan or his demons any more. Understand that a law is a collection of rules set and established by recognized authority. So if you live by the instructions of the Holy Spirit daily, God becomes obligated to uphold the benefits of His kingdom in your life. If you ignore those rules however, you forfeit its benefits and can not hold God responsible for your misery. Determine to live by the Law of the Spirit of life today and all these blessings will manifest speedily for you in Jesus Name. Amen.
