The World’s Most Important Laws


Sin as an entity has been blotted out from me by the blood of Jesus.

His blood is the world’s greatest eraser.

 Rom 6:6  knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, so that the body of sin may be done away with, that we should no longer serve sin.

The sin producing engine, the sinful nature, or my old man, died with me, when I  died with Christ on His cross.

Here are the three facts.

 # 1 Sin as an entity has been eared from my life by the blood of Christ.

 # 2 The old man, the sin producing engine, which manufactured all the sins which Christ had to erase, died with me, when I died with Christ.

# 3  When I died, I became a corpse.  I was taken out of the way in relationship to sin. A corpse cannot sin, though sin remains in the world. I am dead to sin, because a corpse is dead to sin.  Sin is not dead to me. We will study this in a bit. 

It’s amazing to know that I am not dealing with the monster of sin on these three levels, any more.

Ro 7:23  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

What I deal with is not sin as the monster, but with the principle or law of sin, called the law of sin and death which is in my bodily members.

This law is alive and well in the bodily members of every person.

This is what it means that though I am dead to sin because I am corpse, sin is not dead to me because of the law of sin and death.

This law states that every time I sin, it will create death in me.

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.

In Christ, if I obey Him, this law is kept at bay, or dormant in my members, by the greater law of the Spirit of life which is in Him.

But if I disobey Him,  or try to obey Him outside of His voice, I remove myself from the protection of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

The law of the Spirit of life is not outside of Christ, it’s in Him.

This sleeping but deadly law awakens and brings  me death because it’s no longer kept at bay by the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

But it’s so important to know that I no longer fight sin, since the engine which produced it in my life is dead, the sins that were left were erased by Christ’s blood, and the fact that I am corpse makes me dead to sin.

If I try to fight sin I deceive myself.

I put my eyes on an object.

 It becomes an  unconquerable and intimidating animal which plagues me with sickness and bondage.

Worse than this is that I give my energies to something that is no longer real, no longer there.  

But how comforting to know, that sin, the mother of death, is gone as long as I follow the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

My fight is simply to keep it inactive by obeying the voice of the Holy Spirit who will  keeps it sleeping by the superior law of the Spirit of life.

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.

It’s  easier to fight a principle than an entity.

Ro 8:4  That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

So if I obey the Holy Spirit everything that God wants fulfilled in my life will come about by the greater principle of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. It’s automatic.

Several facts about these two laws.

Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and of death.

The universe’s two most important laws or principles are these found in Romans 8:2

Most of humanity finds them irrelevant.

Yet, everyone  is controlled by these two in one way or another.

Even Einstein’s theory of relativity, or the law of gravity are  insignificant if there are no people around to be influenced by them.

The law of sin and death is what causes people to get sick, old and die.

It assures us that every time we sin, we will produce  death.

The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus guarantees every time  that we obey God through Christ it will produce an  eternal type of life in us.

Because the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus is stronger than the law of sin and death those who accept Him can life forever.
