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


We all know that each country has its own set of laws or rules. For example, if you are in a Muslim country, it may not be lawful to sell liquor or consume liquor in public. Whereas drinking in public is not a crime in a Western country. 

Whichever law operates, it governs the conduct and the outcome. For example, in a country like Singapore, trafficking in drugs is a capital punishment. So whenever a person is caught trafficking drugs, the law operates and the sentence is meted out everytime. The law or principal is constant i.e. it operates all the time. When you are in a particular country, the law of the country operates all the time you are in that country regardless or whether you are a citizen or not (e.g. a tourist).  

The law governs the outcome. Just like the law of gravity. If you jump off a building, you will surely hit the ground hard i.e. you body is pulled down to the ground because of the law of gravity. You body will not float in the air and the speed you hit the ground is governed by the same law.  When we are under a certain law, we can expect a certain outcome - good or bad.

So it is important to  know which law or principle governs our life because it determines the outcome. The Good News is that the Word of God says "For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death". These two laws cannot operate together just like light and darkness cannot operate together. Where there is light, there is no darkness.     

There are two laws. The law that governs life and the law that produces death. 

Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus
The outcome from this p
rincipal is that when you are in Christ Jesus, you only have life and not death. This principal brings forth life all the time. Just like the principal of light and darkness. When there is light, darkness fleesWhen we are in Christ Jesus, the law/principal of Life operates and death flees and cannot operate in your life.

In Christ Jesus, according to the law of the Spirit of life – there is only Life and therefore there is no death, there is no lack, there is no poverty, there is no disease, there is no confusion, there is no condemnation, there is no guilt, there is no torment, there is no curse. Only Life operates and bring forth righteousness, abundance, blessings, fulfillment, prosperity, health, right standing, holiness, strength, confidence, God’s purpose and plans and every good thing that springs forth into life.

Law of Sin and Death
Through the law/principal of sin and death, when you sin you die i.e. there is death. Death in your relationship with God, death in your health and wealth etc. When you do something wrong, you are cursed. When you do not follow all of God’s commandments, you cannot be blessed. Sin brings forth death.


In the natural law, we may not have a choice which country we are to be borned.  But thank God who has always given mankind a choice of free will to choose whether we want to be set free from the Law of sin and death. The choice is to either accept the free gift of His Son Jesus Christ as our Saviour, and the punishment that He took for us at the cross OR to choose to be under the Law of sin and death which demands that the soul that sin must die.

Daddy God is good. He sent His Son so that we can have life and have it more abundantly. When we accept His Son, Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, the Law of the Spirit of life operates in our life and therefore that is why the Word of God says "we can have life and have it more abundantly". Today, the Good News is that we can make the choice to be translated from the power of darkness into the kingdom of His Son Jesus Christ and let the Law of the Spirit of life operates in our life with abundant blessings.

Brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for the Israelites is that they may be
saved. For I can testyfy about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeil is not based on knowledge.
