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 8:4 AMPC
So that the righteousness and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh but in the ways of the Spirit [our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit].
We humans have the delusion of independence. But the truth is, we live controlled by something and there is no other way for us. We are subject! Romans 7 exposed that we are controlled by a veritable LAW: the force of sin. That sin can be compulsion to be noble, or the drive to do wrong—either or both.
Here the problem is solved. Not in part, but the whole, entire moral problem of humanity is dissolved and another POWER is available and possible. The Holy Spirit is capable of fulfilling every righteous and holy standard of God and to do so WITHIN us, THROUGH us, FOR us.
The possibility seems impossible, but here it is! Stated clearly and held out freely.
“…the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.”
