“The law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” John 1:17 (NCV)
Scripture for the day
Romans 3:21-26 Amplified Bible (AMP) But now the righteousness of God has been revealed independently and altogether apart from the Law, although actually it is attested by the Law and the Prophets, 22 Namely, the righteousness of God which comes by believing with personal trust and confident reliance on Jesus Christ (the Messiah). [And it is meant] for all who believe. For there is no distinction, 23 Since all have sinned and are falling short of the honor and glory which God bestows and receives. 24 [All] are justified and made upright and in right standing with God, freely and gratuitously by His grace (His unmerited favor and mercy), through the redemption which is [provided] in Christ Jesus, 25 Whom God put forward [before the eyes of all] as a mercy seat and propitiation by His blood [the cleansing and life-giving sacrifice of atonement and reconciliation, to be received] through faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in His divine forbearance He had passed over and ignored former sins without punishment. 26 It was to demonstrate and prove at the present time (in the now season) that He Himself is righteous and that He justifies and accepts as righteous him who has [true] faith in Jesus.
Thought for the day
Hopefully you have a better understanding of the benefits of going from the Law to grace. Romans 8:3 (NCV) “The law was without power, because the law was made weak by our sinful selves. But God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son to earth with the same human life that others use for sin. By sending his Son to be an offering for sin, God used a human life to destroy sin.” Romans 3:19 (ISV) “Now we know that whatever the Law says applies to those who are under the Law”. That Law was to remain in place until Christ came.” Ephesians 2:8-9 (NIRV) “God’s grace has saved you because of your faith in Christ. Your salvation doesn’t come from anything you do. It is God’s gift. 9 It is not based on anything you have done. No one can brag about earning it.
After learning what the Law required, I could not imagine living under its rules and I can say thank you Jesus for bringing God’s grace. Be blessed my friends—Tim.
