"For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do"
-Romans 8:3a (NRSV)


Elevated to power, the challenge is not from the outside, but from within.  Right and wrong, though defined in black and white, many times shows that it also has gray areas as well.  The letter of the law can make one person wealthy while another poor.  The spirit of the law is to treat all alike.  The spirit of the law, though it may be just, loses to the letter.
Hear the Good News, once, bound by the the letter of the Law, we are now freed by Christ, the Spirit of the Law.  Love God, Love one another.  Justice.  Spirit.  What must I do to get by.  Injustice.  The letter.  Christ.  The Law.  Where is it we will learn.  Which lives within us.
Oh Father, the living law, Christ is who I have experienced.  Thank You for freeing even my.  Let me free another by sharing Christ in Your name.  Thank You Father, for all You have done in my life and all You will continue to do.  Amen.
