The Higher Law

Posted: May 11, 2013

Romans 7:13-20 NKJV

Has then what is good become death to me? Certainly not! But sin, that it might appear sin, was producing death in me through what is good, so that sin through the commandment might become exceedingly sinful. For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am carnal, sold under sin. For what I am doin...g, I do not understand. For what I will to do, that I do not practice; but what I hate, that I do. If, then, I do what I will not to do, I agree with the law that it is good. But now, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me. For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh) nothing good dwells; for to will is present with me, but how to perform what is good I do not find. For the good that I will to do, I do not do; but the evil I will not to do, that I practice. Now if I do what I will not to do, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells in me.

I just finished re-reading Romans 5-8 for the umpteenth time. I can't understand why anyone who reads those chapters would choose to live in the verses above. It is as if you were offered freedom or prison, life or death, heaven or hell and you chose prison, death, and hell.

Romans 8:2 NKJV

For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.

LIVE UNDER THE HIGHER LAW!!!
