There are Universal Laws to which all men are subject unless acted upon by another law. An example is gravity – It is a constant force that is always in place and effects all matter. Furthermore, you don’t have to believe in the law or even be aware of it for it to work. Unless another law, like lift, gives you power over it, gravity will constantly be successful in its quest to keep you on the ground.
One such Universal Law is the Law of Sin & Death. It states that all men are sinners (Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”) and that sin ALWAYS leads to death (Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death.”)
And so you can see the predicament of mankind. WE ARE SINNERS DESERVING OF DEATH!
That is a law governing all of mankind…UNLESS! Unless acted on by another law.
Just as all matter is subject to gravity unless acted upon by another force, all mankind is subject to the law of sin and death unless acted on by a permanently opposing law.
I am here to tell you that there is another law!
Scripture tells us, “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” Romans 8:2
God has another law! It was put into play from the foundation of the world. It is the Law of a substitute. The innocent dying for the guilty. The just taking the place of the unjust.
An object in motion tends to stay in motion unless acted on by another force.
An object at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted on by another force.
The law of sin and death tells me that I am a sinner and sin leads to death …unless!
I am Thankful for the Lamb, Jesus Christ!
