James 1:25; “But he who looks into the perfect law, the law of freedom, and continues in it, not having become a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the word, this one will be blessed in his doing.”
The perfect law, that The Lord Jesus in His wisdom gave to mankind is the law of freedom; in its simplest form of LIBERTY. Freedom is not the law of letters written on tablets of stone outside of us, but the law of life inscribed on the hearts men.
Hebrews 8:10; “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people”.
The written word of God in its row form which is the law of letters does not give life to man; but rather the spirit behind the written word of God which is the RHEMA gives life so no matter what you face as a challenge go to the word study it and pray along with for inside it lies the solutions to what is confronting you. Any law that is able to expose man’s weakness and failure and keeps him in slavery is a law of bondage.
Galatians 3:21; “Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law”.
Galatians 5:1; “Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage”.
The perfect law of life is the function of the divine life which was imparted into our being at regeneration and supplies us throughout our Christian life with the unsearchable riches of the divine life to free us from the law of sin and death and fulfil all the righteous requirements of the law of letters, it is the law of freedom.
Romans 8:1-4; “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh: that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit”.
FREEDOM COMES THROUGH DISCIPLINE AND DISCIPLINE IS THE PRICE YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL MUST PAY FOR YOUR FREEDOM.
