 This deliverance from the law of sin and death is not a mere experience (it will produce precious experiences); it is a divine operation, known by faith in His operation who raised up Christ from the dead, known in all its power by its accomplishment in Jesus, in the efficacy of which we participate by faith. The difficulty of receiving it is that we find our experience clashing with it. (Romans 8 by J.N. Darby)
 In verse 2, we have the new life in its power in Christ, which sets us free from the law of sin and death. (Romans 8 by J.N. Darby)
