For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2). From the verse above, we see that there’re two laws: the law of the Spirit of life, and the law of sin and death.
The latter is the law at work in everyone that’s not born again; it promotes death and failure. Sickness and death go together, because when sickness attacks the physical body, death actually sets in and starts destroying it, no matter how slowly.
However, the law of life is more powerful than the law of death, and that’s the law at work in the new creation. That law was activated when you were born again. So, death isn’t at work in you; life is at work in you now; therefore, you’re death-free. Blessed be God!
Look at it this way: when we say an object, maybe a wristwatch, is water-resistant, it means it’s able to resist the penetration of water such that water couldn’t cause it any damage. If something is airtight, it means it doesn’t allow the entrance or escape of air. When you’re debt-free, it means you’re not indebted to anyone—you owe nothing. Therefore, being now death-free, you have no death in you.
Read our opening verse again; it’s so profound. It shows you’re free from death and the law of sin. Glory to God! Sadly, some Christians bring “death” into their lives, into their business, bodies, families, etc., by reprogramming themselves through their negative confessions. But as long as you keep declaring, “In my path, there’s no death,” you’ll walk in the path of life.
Have this consciousness and function accordingly. Keep yourself in the path of life with your words. Remember, death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21).
The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from death and the law of sin! I’m absolutely death-free; off death’s limits, because the law of life is operational in me! I walk in this glorious liberty as a child of God, dispensing life in my world. Hallelujah!
