Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus
Because the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and death.
The great paradox, the laws of: The Spirit of Life verses the law of Sin and Death. Notice the distinguishment between the two: Sin and Death accompany one another like an unholy union since the beginning of time when Adam and Eve ushered it in, being a second union, a spiritual unholy marriage between the two, one can’t exist without the other, the two are eternal companions.
In our culture we have an establishment of laws, first we have municipal law, governed by state law, and precedented by federal law that, in turn adheres to the constitution if need be the federal law overrides the two others. For example, the federal law can condemn the law of the state and the municipalities, protecting and potentially setting someone free.
Similarly, this is how ‘The Law of the Spirit of Life’ operates, by setting us free from the condemnation of Sin and Death, Jesus became a Sin offering and at His death He broke the unholy union between Sin and Death, freeing us from the punishment of the past mistakes. It’s the one divorce in the spirit we all need.
The Law of the Spirit of Life overrides the law of sin and death, for whom the Son sets free is free indeed, not only because Jesus paid the fine, but because He also happens to be your Judge.
