Which ”law” are you operating under?

“‘The lavv of the Spir­it of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death.” Ro 32 NKJV

You say, “I fall so far short of God’s stan­dards. Will there ever come a time when my old car­nal nature will stop act­ing up, and try­ing to drag me down?” There’s bad news and there’s good news. The bad news is, just as the law of grav­i­ty is always in oper­a­tion, so is “the law of sin” that your flesh­ly nature wants to respond to. The good news is, you can access a high­er law and oper­ate in it. it’s called “the law of the Spir­it of life in Christ Jesus,” and it over­rides “the law of sin and death.” The law of grav­i­ty says that what goes up must come down. But when you’re in an air­plane anoth­er law is in operation—the law of aero­dy­nam­ics. It works like this: The plane moves at a cer­tain speed, and the prop­er thrust enables it to climb out of gravity’s pull. That does­n’t mean the law of grav­i­ty is no longer the law of grav­i­ty. Get­ting the idea? You ask, “what is this law of the Spir­it?” Good ques­tion. Here’s the answer. When you’re indwelt by the Holy Spir­it and rely­ing on His pow­er rather than your own, which means being sen­si­tive to His lead­ing and obey­ing His com­mands, you’re no longer con­trolled by “the law of sin and death.” it’s no longer about try­ing hard­er, but lean­ing hard­er on God’s Spir­it who lives with­in you and draw­ing from Him the strength to live vic­to­ri­ous­ly.
