Imagine for a moment that you’re sitting in a huge jumbo jet. You taxi to the end of the runway—and you’re ready to take off. With all the other passengers—the cargo—and all the fuel—the total weight is at least 500 tons!
If we have a limited perspective on natural law, we could only conclude that the law of gravity demonstrates that this gigantic machine will never leave the ground. However, we all know that there’s another law that can overcome the law of gravity. It’s the law of aerodynamics. You see, when the pilot activates those great jet engines—you’ll lunge forward—you move down the runway—and lift off and climb skyward. In a matter of minutes you’ll be soaring at 40,000 feet.

 

 

You may be asking—what’s the point? Well, you see, Adam and Eve introduced all of us to the law of sin and death. We all know that well. But, when God sent Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit into this world, He activated another law that is greater than the law that keeps us earthbound. It’s the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus. This law can set us “free” from the law of sin and death. When we sincerely put our faith in Jesus Christ, receive His gift of eternal life, God’s power can be activated in our lives—the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead and seated Him at God’s right hand. When this happens, even when we were dead in our trespasses, God raised us up in Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly places. This power that saved us is also the same power that enables us to live a godly life while on earth. Have you experienced this power in your life?
