PDF: Studies in the Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ – Romans 8:1


I want to do a little work with you on “The Law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus”. Someone messaged me about this – I am going to work down through some of the beginning verses in Romans 8:1-11 especially. In my book, “Scriptural Medicine for Physical Healing”, I call Romans 8:2 the “Granddaddy of all the healing verses pertaining to our freedom in Christ from both sin and sickness. We must learn about the Law of Life and TRAIN ourselves to live it.”

I love studying this subject of the “Law of Life in Christ Jesus” and invite you to do some digging with me. I have attached a short PDF document with Romans 8:1 – it is meant for induction and meditation. Notice the words highlighted, italicized, underlined and set forth on their own line.

I learned in studying E.W. Kenyon that you can’t read hardly more than one sentence at a time and then stop and think about it if you expect to get anything that he is saying.

I try to practice that in my own writings and study.

This is a breakdown of a commentary by David Brown….of the many commentaries I have looked at on Romans 8, I have found his to be the one most in line with the new creation realities and the power of the Redemptive Work. I have taken his commentary, broken it down into bite size pieces and added some explanation and clarity.

Here is the introduction to this document:

Romans 8:1: There is therefore now no condemnation to them that are in Christ Jesus who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit. (King James Version)

1. There is therefore now–referring to the subject in the immediately preceding context (Romans 7). The subject with which the seventh chapter concludes is still under consideration.

The scope of Romans 8:1-4 is to show how “the law of sin and death” is deprived of its power
to bring believers again into bondage, and
how the holy law of God (the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus) receives
in them
the homage (worship)
of a living obedience.

I would enjoy your comments and insights you receive from this study.
