The law of the Spirit of Life in Yeshua Jesus overcomes the law of sin and death. How do you think resurrection works anyway? Resurrection is new life! It is being “born again”. Resurrection is into eternal life.
Yeshua Jesus died on the cross under the law of sin and death. But, He was resurrected under the law of the Spirit of Life! He paid the price of the law of sin and death for us so that we might walk with Him in the law of the Spirit of life. Yeshua Jesus made it possible for us to repent/turn around/change from following the sin road (resulting in death) and choose to go on His road of righteousness with Him (resulting in eternal life)!
John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
If you have chosen to follow God’s law of the Spirit of Life in Yeshua Jesus, then the result is eternal life with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who is Life.
If you have chosen to follow the world and the law of sin and death, then the result is death because you are without Life!
This is NOT just a mental idea or belief. The spiritual law demands that who you follow, who you serve, is the consequence of what you get. You reap what you sow. The wages of sin is death. It requires a whole life change! It requires that you lose your own flesh worldly life to gain the opportunity to walk with Him in His righteousness. This is a NEW LIFE.
Baptism is a public announcement of our determination to change…to repent…to live a NEW WAY! We are filled and walking in a new Spirit – the Holy Spirit. Do you really think His Holy Spirit is going to look the same as the spirit of the world?
Resurrection is amazingly costly even if it is a free gift by His grace – because He made it possible at His high expense! What does God say about it?
Matthew 6:24, “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”
Romans 6: 15-23 (Amplified version), “What then are we to conclude? Shall we sin because we are not under Law, but under God’s grace? Certainly not! Do you not know that when you continually offer yourselves to someone to do his will, you are the slaves of the one whom you obey, either slaves of sin, which leads to death, or of obedience, which leads to righteousness (right standing with God)? But thank God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed. And having been set free from sin, you have become the slaves of righteousness [of conformity to God’s will and purpose]. I am speaking in familiar human terms because of your natural limitations, your spiritual immaturity. For just as you presented your bodily members as slaves to impurity and to moral lawlessness, leading to further lawlessness, so now offer your members, your abilities, your talents as slaves to righteousness, leading to sanctification, that is, being set apart for God’s purpose. When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness [you had no desire to conform to God’s will]. So what benefit did you get at that time from the things of which you are now ashamed? None! For the outcome of those things is death! But now since you have been set free from sin and have become willing slaves to God, you have your benefit, resulting in sanctification [being made holy and set apart for God’s purpose], and the outcome of this is eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God [that is, His remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers] is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
If you choose Yeshua Jesus who is Life, you already have eternal life working in you. Death has lost its sting! The death of our physical body is now just a transfer from this physical flesh dimension into the dimension of the Father’s kingdom of Life! We are born again and resurrected into His Kingdom and Life!
Do you see the blessing in God’s law of the Spirit of Life in Yeshua Jesus? This is our great HOPE! God’s law is good! He is holy, good, and just! His law of life overcomes evil! Hallelujah! We just need to get into His good and right law!
Repent and change directions…..lose the worldly life and focus…. to be reborn spiritually with focus on Yeshua and His Way of righteousness! Remember the call, “Repent, the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Be mindful of what your hand is doing. If it is not right, then turn and change direction! Separate yourself from the world and separate yourself unto Him and His kingdom. Set your HOPE on Him! Grow in His Word and in knowing Father, Son Yeshua, and the Holy Spirit! Blessings!
