“For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2 MEV. The same verse in The Message translation reads as follows: “Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.” Romans 8: 1-2.
As born-again Christians, what does it mean to be free from the law of sin and death? Here are a just a few of the things it signifies:
For any situation we face, we can choose to speak words of the law of sin and death, words of unbelief and doubt or we can choose to speak the Word of God, words of the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.
On the one hand, we have the lies of the devil. On the other, the truth of the Word of God. We are the deciding witness. 2 Corinthians 13:1 NIV says, "...Every matter must be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses." Do we bear witness with Satan's lies or God's truth?
My dear friend, no matter how dire your circumstances are today, speak the Word of God over them and activate the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. God’s Word will never fail you.

I pray that each of us as believers will walk each day in the knowledge that the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has delivered us from the law of sin and death. Notice that it says HAS delivered us, not will. The law of sin and death cannot touch our lives unless we allow it to. Today, let's walk in the abundant life Jesus has provided for us.
