Two hundred years ago, “rational” thinking folks would have mocked you if you spoke of the possibility of massive jumbo jets floating through the air filled with human beings. Any sensible person knew that massively heavy objects couldn’t possibly float through the air, as though they were lighter than a feather. They “knew” this because of an invisible law—the law of gravity. But we now know that this is possible, because of another law that overcomes gravity. When an object moves at a certain speed, it supersedes the invisible law of gravity and enters into another invisible law—the law of aerodynamics. Gravity remains, but the heavy object breaks free from its influence.
The Bible says that all of humanity is subject to an invisible law—“the law of sin and death.” That law says that the soul who sins will die. Those who deny that it exists should simply take a trip to a graveyard (they will one day). Universal death proves that this law is a reality. However, because of the cross of Jesus Christ, we can break free from the law of sin and death. The moment you repent and trust in the risen Savior, you move into the influence of another invisible law. This is a higher law—“the law of life in Christ Jesus”—and it is simple to prove. You need only to step into the plane. Tragically, most don’t, because of a closed mind. “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death” (Rom. 8:2).
Ezekiel 18:20The soul who sins shall die. The son shall not bear the guilt of the father, nor the father bear the guilt of the son. The righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.
