For while we were living in the flesh, our sinful passions, aroused by the law, were at work in our members to bear fruit for death. 6 But now we are released from the law, having died to that which held us captive, so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit and not in the old way of the written code.
When we focus on doing the right thing because of our knowledge of the LAW, DEATH is the result. If we lay down the written code and embrace the Spirit of God, to follow and please Him at all times, LIFE is the result.
Choose life not law!
