Wesley's Notes for Romans 8:2


8:2 The law of the Spirit - That is, the gospel. Hath freed me from the law of sin and death - That is, the Mosaic dispensation.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 8:2


Ro 8:2 For the law of the Spirit of life. The Spirit of life must be the Holy Spirit. The whole phrase is equivalent to the Gospel, which has been given to men by the agency of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit has quickened us into a new life, and as we have died to the law and to sin, we are freed from them. Wesley says that the meaning is the "Gospel has freed us from the Mosaic law". That the law of the Spirit of life describes the Gospel is shown by Ro 8:3, which explains this verse.

    Verses 38 and 39 show that absolutely nothing, not even death itself, can separate us from God's love. That is such a comforting thought of how deep and powerful God's love is.

    There's more than sufficient evidence in this chapter of this letter to satisfy all who hunger for righteousness. Article 30 explains that if one repents, is baptized in the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ you WILL receive the Holy Ghost. With the very Spirit of God residing in the one who follows Him they will they will diligently seek to see His Face and follow Him as a bride to wed Him-TRUE LOVE!
