Freedom From Sin & Death

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

The word for law here means “rule”. Before Christ we were under the rule of sin and death (separated from the God-kind of life). But in Christ Jesus we are now under the rule of the Spirit of life, which is translated as a life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, and blessed. The old nature of sin leading to death has been removed. As you receive a new spirit within you, your spirit now has residing in it the Spirit of God Himself. His Spirit is where this “Zoe” life comes from.

To walk in this new Zoe life within us we must as Paul states a few verses after this, get our mind focused on the spirit and not on the flesh. Simply put, we must renew our mind to see ourselves through our new spirit man, the new nature within. If we will start getting this new view on life from the spirit man within, and we walk according to the inward man, we will experience the freedom we have been given from the rule of sin and death.

We also need to learn to be led by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit man. We need to learn to listen to our spirit, what our heart is leading us to do. Our conscience is the voice our new spirit man. If we listen to our conscience, we can be led by our spirit and walk in the Spirit of life. Follow this inward witness and set your mind on this new man by renewing your mind through the Word of God, for the Word and the Spirit agree. As you do you will experience the rule of the Spirit of life over you, free from sin and death.
