About Law of Liberty Series
The Law of the Spirit isn't a new set of rules or method that you must perform - it's all done for you. What is this Law of Liberty all about?
Romans 8:5 ESV
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
Absolute surrender means you give over all – all rights, all choices – even the right to think in secret as you please.
To give over the control to the Spirit seems to be coming into the most restrictive and confined life, but He is the giver of true liberty, the arbiter and advocate of freedom – not imprisonment. He releases, He doesn’t diminish.
Remember, “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has SET YOU FREE from the law of sin and death.”
The great spiritual paradox is that to give your freedoms away to the Lord gains for you the most exquisite, unfolding freedom through the incomparable Holy Spirit!
