For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. Romans 8.2.

What is the nature of this law of life? Such a nature will operate spontaneously along certain lines. For instance, the ear will spontaneously hear and the eye will instinctively see without the need of it being forcibly controlled. So too will the tongue taste food, swallowing naturally what is good and spitting out what is bad—all without the need of any conscious effort. What God puts in us is life, and this life is a law by itself.

Let us illustrate this as follows: Suppose you speak to a dead peach tree, saying, “You should have green leaves and red flowers, and at the appointed time bear peaches.” You can say this from the beginning of the year to the end and yet get nothing, because it is dead. If it is a live peach tree, though, it will quite naturally sprout, leaf, blossom, and yield fruit without your asking at all. This is called the law of life, for it operates automatically.
