Law in Stone v. Law of the Spirit

Law in Stone v. Law of the Spirit

I tell you that the one born again by faith in Jesus receives the indwelling Holy Spirit as Guarantor of covenant relationship with the Father (Ephesians 1:13-14) and it is the Holy Spirit who walks the faithful in Jesus in a LAW that is more stringent and life changing than the Torah…it is the Law of the Spirit that penetrates the heart through the conscience as the Spirit walks those in Jesus in the process of sanctification where the Spirit daily and incrementally transforms God’s children into the obedient likeness of Jesus Christ as the Spirit prepares them “daily” for service in the New Jerusalem (Galatians 5:16).

The Law of the Spirit is infinitely superior to the Law of the Covenant because the Law of the Spirit is etched upon the human heart whereas the Law of the Covenant is etched upon stone. Stone reflects the coldness and impersonal attributes of the Law carved within it by an accusatory finger but the Law that penetrates a pliable human heart produces peace and intimacy with God as it is the indwelling Holy Spirit that teaches and guides and provides discernment with love, patience, grace, forgiveness, God’s strength to face this World with victory, a World that is fading away in defilement and rebellion to God’s Truth in Jesus Christ.
