The law of the Spirit of life (Romans 8:2)

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

I've always been tuned into the verse before this - how there is no longer any condemnation for those who are in Christ - which is a pretty awesome promise. But the details of why and how are pretty fascinating too.

There is a law of sin and death in the same way there is a law of gravity. We are all bound by it because it is the way things are. However, we are freed from sin and death because of another law - the Spirit. This would be more akin to the presidential pardon analogy. We've sinned and been put away - sentenced to death in prison. But because of what the Spirit has done we're pardoned.

We're set free in Christ Jesus. There is no condemnation because we are no longer bound by the law of sin and death. We are bound by the law of the Spirit of life. We have a God who beat death. That's pretty cool. A lot of people settle for god's they think will give them money to buy a car, or a god which might help their business. But our God HAS beat death.

And we're set free. Awesome.
