THE LAW OF FREEDOM

July 10, 2017

Well we just did a week of my favorite posts, from 2009 until 2016, but now it’s back to work, blessings

The Law of Freedom

  For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).

  We need not submit to the law, nor do we need to struggle against it. It is now a matter of our standing on heavenly ground in our risen Lord, free from the influence and demands of the entire principle of law. In Christ Jesus we are motivated by a higher law, ‘the law of the Spirit of life’ (Rom. 8:2).

There is no way of deliverance from the law and its bondage, into that liberty for which Christ set us free except to believe, and to keep reckoning, that we died to the law with Him, and are now risen, and joined to Another, the Risen One—even as Romans 7:4 asserts: ‘Ye also were made dead to the law through the body of Christ; that ye should be joined to another, even Him who was raised from the dead, that we might bring forth fruit unto God.’

In man the law and the flesh always go together. The Cross was the end for both in the sight of God. The flesh was judged and condemned there; it was treated as a dead thing before God—dead and buried; and the law which deals with the flesh we are dead to. We have passed out of both; we are not in the flesh (Rom. 8:9), and we are not under the law (Gal. 2:19).

  “But you are not living the life of the flesh, you are living the life of the Spirit, if the [Holy] Spirit of God [really] dwells within you—directs and controls you” (Rom. 8:9, Amp.).
