Law of Gravity

Romans 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus 
has made me free from the law of sin and death."

Just as surely as the law of gravity pulls us toward the earth there is the “Law of the Spirit” that pulls us out of “sin and death” toward a life of freedom in the Spirit. When we first begin our walk with the Lord this is very difficult because we “feel” the pull of the earthly. We seem to be traveling in circles. As we learn to partake of the “Spirit of Life” we are slowly released from the “gravity of the flesh”. As I properly relate to “The Cross” each day it holds my flesh nature in a place of death. Now I see that I am not going in circles but in an ever “higher orbit”. There is a point that I break out of an “earthly orbit” and begin to orbit the “Sun” (Son). Before it seemed easy to embrace the flesh. Now the gravitational pull of the “Law of the Spirit” has set me free. Whom to “Son” sets free is free indeed.
