The law of death

After Romans 7:1-6

We chafe at is restrictions,
its do’s and don’ts, this thing
we call the law. We are 
free of the law only when
we die, breaking free from
the chains of rules and
statutes and amendments
and codes.

And so
when we die to death,
when a new birth lifts us
above the law, the way
of death, no longer are we
creatures of the law but
creatures of love,
belonging to each other,
belonging to the one
who died and
lives again.
