2. THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.
Another law we see mentioned is the law of sin and death.
In fact, it is mentioned more than once.
Romans 7:23 it speaks of the 'LAW OF SIN'.
Romans 8:2 it speaks of the 'LAW OF SIN AND DEATH'.
There are many other scriptures that make mention of this aspect.
Romans 6:23 'For the wages of sin is death!'
Romans 3:23 'For ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.'
1 John 1:8 (Amplified version) 'If we say we have no sin, we delude (deceive) and lead ourselves astray, and the Truth is not in us.'
Romans 7:21 'So I find it to be a LAW, that when I want to do good, evil is ever present with me and I am subject to its insistent demands.'
Every man, woman and child who was ever born or ever will be born has a problem with SIN.
The Good News is that God has provided an answer to our sin problem.
2 Corinthians 5:21 'For our sakes HE made Christ to be sin for us, who knew no sin, that we might be made the righteousness of God in HIM.'
- So, we see this 'law of sin and death' that Paul mentions in his writings.
3. THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE.
Christ came and died so that this law could become a reality on our lives.
Romans 8:2 speaks about this: '...the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus...'
Here we see a different dimension.
Here is another law that gives us all the hope we need.
It's a law that changes the dynamic in every situation we may find ourselves in in the course of life.
It is clearly illustrated in the verse.
Romans 8:2 'For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.'
Jesus has turning things around for us.
Through Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit, there is another law that comes into effect and this law has the power to set us free from the other law.
