The Law of the Flesh / ????? ?????

In today’s epistle reading the Apostle Paul says, “in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. . . . O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?”

How clearly he has set forth for us the fruits of our fall into sin! Truly, who can deliver use from the body of this death? The Apostle answers, “I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.” Thus we see that while the law of the flesh continues to war in our members, we need not live according to it, we are not subject to its power. Why?

Because “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death.” For “God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:
That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Christ Jesus, our Saviour, gives us the ability to live not according to the flesh, but according to the spirit – the ability to serve not the law of the flesh but the law of God, not the law of death, but the law of Life! Glory to our compassionate Lord!
