Romans 8: Life in the Spirit pt 2

Romans 8:2-4 tells us the law of the Spirit of Life, present at the creation of the world (Gen 1:2), has set us free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. The law of sacrifice was formed in the old testament where animal blood was shed for sins. However, Hebrews 10 tells us despite the sacrifices of bulls and goats, sin remained year after year. Despite the burnt offerings and sin offerings our sinful flesh was never satisfied by form of sacrifice. Therefore, the body of our Lord Yeshua was prepared in likeness of flesh, which carries sin to fulfill the prophesy of Isaiah 53.  Jesus poured out his soul to death and was numbered with our transgressions.  He bore the sin of many and became our Intercessor.

We spend a lot of time pondering over where we messed up in life and beat ourselves up over the sins we struggle to overcome. Until we realize the only solution for our sin is The Solution.  This vital for spiritual growth and maturity. It is through this understanding that we need more of Jesus and we need to die every day.  Understanding the Lamb of God as the FINAL covering of our sins, releases us of the guilt the devil tries to imprint in our mind. Those thoughts of unworthiness should not deter us from coming to Jesus, because his blood deemed us right by law.
