It’s Canceled—You’re Free!
by Adrian Rogers, Love Worth Finding Ministries
"For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free
from the law of sin and death."
- Romans 8:2
Has the law of gravity been canceled? No, but another law, the law of aerodynamics, came into effect. A greater power than gravity was keeping me aloft. When you get right with God, the law of sin and death is still there. But for a Christian, there’s a new law—the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. It sets us free from the law of sin and death.
That doesn’t mean the law of sin and death isn’t pulling on me, I’m not tempted or there’s not that downward pull. But hallelujah, there’s that upward pull, power of life in Christ Jesus.
Now, if I were to step outside the plane by my own choice, I’d go down. The law of gravity is always there. It’s also my choice as a Christian: if I cease to abide in Christ, the law of sin and death is always there. I have to stay in the plane; I have to abide in the Lord Jesus Christ, where there’s no more condemnation, no more control by sin.
As long as you abide in Jesus Christ, you’re free from the law of sin and death. Then it’s your turn to set another captive free with the Good News. Go out and share it with someone today.
