Daily Bread - January 9, 2019 (The Fourth Day - Genesis 1:14-19)

Romans 8:2 - For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has freed me
from the law of sin and death.

Whereas we were once controlled and dominated by the law of sin and death,
we are now under the power and dominion of the law of the Spirit of life.
The new birth brought to us a radical change. Now, we no longer trace our
existence to the disobedient Adam, but rather to Christ Jesus. The death
and sin that took dominion over Adam's life has been completely removed
from our lives. We are now presented to God in the body of the flesh of
Christ Jesus (Colossians 1:21-22). We have been born into the family of God
and made partakers of the New Covenant where sin and death have no dominion.

We are now empowered to walk in the ways of God and keep His Laws by
nature. The ways of God are established in our lives being written now upon
the tables of our heart and mind (2 Corinthians 3:3; Hebrews 8:10, 10:16).
The prophet Jeremiah described the law of the Spirit of life when he said,
"I will put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts."
(Jeremiah 31:33). The prophet Ezekiel said, "A new heart also will I give
you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony
heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a new heart of flesh."
(Ezekiel 36:25-27).

As the law of sin produced death, now the law of life in the Spirit
produces in our life the very life of God. Without the life of the Spirit
that came to us through the New Birth we would remain under the stronghold
of Adam's condemnation. But through Christ Jesus, we now live and walk in
the life-giving power of God. The supply of the Spirit is a wellspring of
provision, springing up in us and supplying us with every aspect of the
life of God (John 4:14). The Spirit of God which we have been given is a
river of divine power and ability (2 Peter 1:3). The power of God is at
work on the inside of us supplying all we need to do all God has commanded
us to do. As we are led by the Spirit and learn to walk according to His
spiritual laws, we have the witness that we are the sons of God, and the
fruits of our lives are holiness (Romans 6:16-19, 6:22, 8:14; Galatians
5:18, 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 2:13; Matthew 7:16-20; Philippians 1:11)

Let God and His Word be your vision!
