Romans 7:21-23 (NET) So, I find the law that when I want to do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God in my inner being. But I see a different law in my members waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that is in my members.
Because Larry had explored a sinful life for long before he believed in the Lord Jesus, it was particularly difficult for him to live a victorious life above sin. He always wondered if it was possible for him to enjoy the victory over sin he knew was his portion in Christ. He knew what sin was because of the law of God he knew in his mind, it was only that he did not seem to have the ability to overcome it.
He realized that it was not by the law but by the Spirit that he could put to death the works of the flesh. Because of his communion with brethren to whom he was accountable, his prayer life grew and he found that the more he prayed and was filled with the power of the Spirit, the more he had power over the power of the flesh. He now understood why the Lord instructed us in His word to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
Go into today remembering that the only way you can overcome the law of sin operating from the flesh is by employing the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus(Romans 8:1-2). For the believer, being filled with the Spirit(see Ephesians 5:19-21) is not a luxury, it is a necessity to activating the law of the Spirit of life and walking in the liberty of Christ.
Prayer: Lord, help me always be filled with your spirit and walk above the law of sin. Amen.
