Romans 8:2-4 ESV For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. (3) For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh, (4) in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
We find our true victory over the curse of sin and death in the Law of the Spirit. The Law of the Spirit is the life of our Lord Christ Jesus.
It is the privilege of the child of God in the power of the Holy Spirit to have victory over sin every day, every hour, and every moment. It also gives us freedom over death and the grave. As a Christian, we can no longer use the excuse “well, I am just a sinner, I can’t help but to sin.” We are no longer “sinners” bound by sin, for we have been freed from the Law of Sin and Death.
My Biblical and spiritual position is that of being a saint that occasionally sins. Even though we will son, we should not live our lives expecting to sin. Typically we expect to sin during the day and are greatly surprised if we don’t. We should not be surprised when we don’t sin. We are children of the Most High God with the Person of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. We should have great expectation each day of walking in righteousness and holiness and be surprised when we don’t.
This is the authority we have with our new birthright and living under the Law of the Spirit. Also, as we learn to walk out the Law of the Spirit we should not expect, nor confess, that we will physically “fall apart” as we get older. The Scriptures state that life and death are in the tongue. It also states that we confess blessings or curses. We need to stand in faith in the Law of the Spirit and confess a blessing and confess life over ourselves and our love ones.
