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. In Romans 7 and 8 Paul uses the term “law” several times. Let’s focus on the best and top law – the Spirit of Life that sets us free from another law. This law of the Spirit is like a rocket blast that is able to free an object from the law of gravity. One law frees from another law (or overcomes it). So the more we live in the Spirit the move we can overcome the effects of sin and death.
