The Laws of Life and Death


Scientists have over the years done a lot of research as they seek to understand nature. Today we can see the results of that research applied in various aspects of life. However, there is one thing that has made all these possible; that is the understanding of the laws of nature. Every aspect of life is guided by a certain law, which when understood gives us the ability to operate within its boundaries. Going against any law of nature is a sure way to fail. Now these laws have been established over time since the creation of the universe. Once established, the laws became permanent, and unchangeable. Not once has God changed any of the laws that he established. It’s only by establishing another law that some remedy could be found, but not changing it. That is the reason why Jesus said that he never came to destroy the law of the prophets but rather to fulfill it (Matt 5:17-18).


Two of these laws are the laws of the spirit of life, and the law of sin and death (Rom 8:1-17). The Law of the spirit of life says that those who live according to the spirit will reap eternal life. The Law of the spirit of life frees one from the law of sin and death. Jesus Christ is the one who came to establish the law of the spirit by the grace received through salvation. Our understanding of this fact will free us from the sinful nature and from the law of death. The law of sin and death condemns those who live according to the sinful nature. The result is that those who live according to the sinful nature will reap destruction (Gal 6:1-2).


Now realize that the devil knows these and many more laws established by the word of God. His endeavor is to make us break these laws, and therefore, suffer the consequences. Your job is to learn the way to live in the spirit – walking in the spirit and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature; thus freeing yourself from the law of sin and death. Gal 5: 1 says, “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then and not let yourself be burdened again by a yoke of slavery”.


I would suggest this day that the empty tomb represents an emptied, not empty heart and life. The stone represents the sin that blocks the heart and life from being liberated and freed from the darkness that it contains. God, through Christ, has rolled that stone away! Freedom is possible and we remember this day and give thanks. - Jim Kane
