For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set you FREE from the law of sin and of death.”- v 2

“For,”-{Gar} provides an explanation. In this case from v 1 why you are not nor ever will be condemned in Christ. “Law” speaks of principle, that exercises control over a person. Think of the principle of gravity that keeps us earth bound, so sin keeps us bound likewise. But just as gravity can be overcome by aerodynamics as is proven every time you fly or a spaceship fly’s above earth,so in the spiritual realm, the power of the Holy Spirit enables us to live free from the bondage to sin, it’s power by submitting continually to Him in compliance and applying His Word.  There is a new law for the new life, The Holy Spirit empowering you to live free from being mastered by sin…as we submit to Him we find His enabling to live in power to do His Will from the heart, a new power controlling and empowering. The Holy Spirit is more powerful than the principle of sin and death! The Holy Spirit gives us not only the DESIRE but the ABILITY to do what is pleasing to the LORD. -{Read Phil 2:13}.

Note the word “has” not ‘maybe’ or ‘will try to’ but “has.” He has done this!!! You are Free, now! Because of what He has done! And you enjoy the fruit of His work.

You don’t pray for freedom, you live in freedom you presently and permanently have, applying His Word to your life! Freedom is already yours “in Christ,” by the power of the Holy Spirit.

You just need to understand who He is and what He has done for you and all you have in Christ, and the Holy Spirit your “Teacher,” “…will guide you into all truth.”-{Read John 16:13}

F. F. Bruce paraphrases “there is no condemnation” as follows “There is no reason why those who are in Christ Jesus should go on doing penal servitude as though they had never been pardoned and liberated from the prison house of sin. (Bruce, F F, The Epistle of Paul to the Romans: Tyndale Press, 1966)

For a believer we battle our flesh, sin, but when temptation comes it is a matter of choosing the Savior OVER THE TEMPTATION to sin, knowing you have the power to say Yes to the LORD,  and NO to self and sin! Concentrate on the LORD who has promised,” For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.”-{Phil 1:6}, NOTE, Who began the work? The LORD did. Where did He begin the work? “IN You!” And What has He promised to do? To finish what He started,” IN you.” What glorious truth this is to encouraged you, What He starts He finishes! As aerodynamics lifts a huge plane, or space rocket off the ground, The Holy Spirit lifts us off the Ground to a higher level free from bondage to sin that keeps us down, through this new Power, The Holy Spirit working in you!

Wuest translates the verse: “for the law of the Spirit, that of the life in Christ Jesus, freed you once for all from the law of the sinful nature and of death.”  Wow, “once for all!

Paul wrote to the Galatian believers, “It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.” -{Galatians 5;1}. “…So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.”-{John 8:36}. You are free from the power of sin, the power of he law to condemn you all because of Him! You are Free from the bondage of self love to  sacrificially love others.{Gal 5:13-14} You are free, not independence from God but to obey God’s Word. -“I will keep on obeying your instructions forever and ever.I will walk in freedom, for I have devoted myself to your commandments. “-{Psalm 119;44-45 NLT}

Choose to think on the truth.

Choose to practice the truth because you are Freed!

Commit to Him, –Submit to Him- Transmit an ever changing life!
