Under One; Released From Two

  Even though we are under grace, we are also under the law of Christ, the perfect law of liberty, the truth that makes us free. While under His law we as Christians have also been delivered from two others laws. One is the law of Moses (the Gentiles were never under that law), and the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2,3). The law of sin and death is simply stated: you sin, you die spiritually. In Christ we are made free from this law. Even though we sin we can be made spiritually alive by coming to Him. The wages of sin need not be suffered (Romans 6:23). This is why His law is called the law of liberty.

  His law must be obeyed if we benefit from it. It is a law of grace, mercy and love  for man by God, and also a law of faith and obedience on the part of man. By this law we shall be judged (John 12:48).
