In Romans 8:1-4, we read of three great laws. "The law of sin and death, by Adam." "The law, the ministration of condemnation and death, by Moses," 2 Corinthians 3:5-9. "The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus."
Thus we learn that: By Adam is the entrance of Sin. Romans 5:12. By Moses is the knowledge of sin. Romans 3:20, Romans 5:20, and Galatians 3:19. And that by Jesus Christ, is the forgiveness of sins. Acts 13:39.
The Holy Spirit, through the Apostle Paul wrote, "When Christ who is our life shall appear." Colossians 3:1-4. Christ declared Himself to be The Life. John 14:6. Paul wrote, "Christ liveth in me." "For me to live is Christ." In 2 Timothy 1:10 we learn that Christ brings life and the guarantee of incorruptibility to light in the Gospel. In John 10:28 we Have the words of Christ, "I give unto them eternal life and they shall never perish." In John 11:25 Christ is the resurrection and the life for believers who will never die. Christ, of course, had power to lay down His life and to take it up again. John 10:17-19.
So here is what we understand...that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus frees the believer from the law of sin and death; from the penalty and wages of sin; and from the wrath to come.
The sum total of man's spiritual responsibility and duty is with respect to "the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus."
Therefore, FIRST, appropriate that law and be Saved. SECOND, demonstrate that law by walking in the Spirit and fulfilling the righteousness of the law. THIRD, propagate that Law of Life by preaching and teaching it to others; that is, by proclaiming the message of Grace unmixed with religion or legalism.
In Ephesians 1:13 the Holy Spirit through the Apostle Paul declares that men are saved and sealed by hearing and BELIEVING the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation. Therefore, here, now, is declared unto you the Word of Truth, the Gospel of your Salvation: "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; and that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4. BELIEVE today. The time is short.
So There You Have it!
Spread this message to everyone you know, far and wide.
Grace be to you and peace, from God: our Father, and The LORD Jesus Christ.
In The LORD Jesus Christ,
