Scripture of the Day - May 6, 2012

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

We can't get away from it. Just by living on this planet we are under some set of laws, physical and spiritual. We can deny it all we want but it doesn't take away the law and the effect of the law.
Let's take the law of gravity. As much as we might deny gravity it is still going to have it's effect on us. No amount of human reason is going to take away the fact that what goes up must come down. And while we may find it a nuisance at times, gravity works to our benefit.
Let's take the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus. As much as humanity might deny it we are free only in Jesus Christ. Without Him we are under the law of sin and death. No amount of human reasoning is going to change that. The wages of sin is death and that's that. And while we might find it a nuisance at times to not do as we please, Jesus Christ works to our benefit because the gift of God is eternal life, and the nuisance we have to put up with here can't compare to the glory that will be revealed to us when we reach heaven. We, in our humanity, can't even imagine the splendor God has in store for us.
Like a child anticipates Christmas morning we ought to set our affection on things above and seek after them.
