CONDEMNATION IS GONE.
(The Superior Law For The New Creation)
TO THE BIBLE: Romans 8:1-2 NASB
“Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and of death.”
Apostle Paul, in Romans 8:1-2, made reference to two laws: the law of the Spirit of life, and the law of sin and death. The latter refers to the Old Testament Law, which brought condemnation to both the Jews and Gentiles. It was given to the Jews, but they couldn’t keep it, and so they were condemned. The Gentiles, on the other hand, didn’t have the Law given to them and thus were estranged from God (Ephesians 2:12). The very fact that the Law wasn’t given to them was their condemnation.
Now, when God gave the Law to the Jews in the Old Testament, it was to guide them, because they were sense-ruled. However, the Law couldn’t produce life. But in the New Testament, everyone who has received Christ has eternal life (1 John 5:13). There’s a law at work for everyone who has that life; it’s called the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. This law is superior to the law of sin and death, because it breaks the Jew free from the Law of Moses that condemns. Then, the Gentile, who was condemned by his estrangement from God, is reconciled with the principle of life working in him, upon receiving Christ.
Now that you’re born again, the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made you free from the law of sin and death, and all condemnation. Live free and triumphantly every day. Refuse to allow anything or anyone condemn you; you’ve passed from death into life! You’re in the kingdom of life. Glory to God!
I’m the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! Sin, sickness, disease, and poverty, are under my dominion! I reign over them because I’m superior to this world and its systems. There’s no death, defeat or failure in my path, because I live by the law of the Spirit of life, in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah!
