Bible commentary

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.

Discussion for Romans 8

  • Ray321
    Romans 8:3 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: JESUS NEVER SINNED. Glory be to God for his only begotten Son that died for our sins and rose from the dead three days.
  • Rev Franklin Miller
    As for Vs. 38-39, I agree that nothing can separate us FROM the love of God. God loves the sinner also such as we were before becoming Christians. However we CAN separate our love FROM Him by our willful and negligent sin. 1st John 2:"4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him." This is willful and negligent sin and NO sin enters Heaven.
  • Deborah
    Deborah, I love it because God's Word not only spoke,to the hearts,of mankind, but even years beyond the events in the Bible we can see they were meant to be timeless prices of Art and the ability for anyone to follow is still like that of a,child.

    I am not full of praise for you but criticism for your sing a song and feel his blessing. Not real conversion but phoney Christians like Pense. Sick. God demands more if not everything. What you say, what you do, how you are, whst you feel, in shirt everything. Anybody can dummy up a blissful smile and say praise, praise, but not everyone can please God. He is real and does not fall for lies
