Slave to the Law
“Helping People Fulfill God’s Plan For Their Lives Through Business”
Are You A Slave To The Law?
So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law. Galatians 5:1 NLT
The Gospel is all about God’s Righteous Loving Work, not your own. The Law wants you to perform so as to obtain righteousness, goodness and holiness through performance. The law brings guilt and condemnation because you cannot be good, holy, righteous or perfect on your own. You must come to the end of yourself by surrendering and trusting Jesus Christ by faith for HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS and HOLINESS to enter into your life.
Are you justified by your own performance or are you justified by God’s love through Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death and resurrection? Justification means you are like you have never sinned. You are made right with God.
You are Justified and made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ, not by the performance or ceremonial ritual. This is the almost too-good-to-be-true NEWS of the GOSPEL.
All of your self-effort is like filthy rags compared to the Righteousness and Holiness of God.
We are all infected and impure with sin. When we display our righteous deeds, they are nothing but filthy rags. Like autumn leaves, we wither and fall, and our sins sweep us away like the wind. Isaiah 64:6
If you distrust Christ you gain nothing and profit nothing. It is in the free gift of God’s grace that you receive the abundant life, not through your efforts but the resurrected Jesus Christ.
How is it going putting your trust and efforts in following the law to be justified?
How is it going putting your trust in the finished work of Jesus Christ’s love and righteousness which you received as a free gift to be justified? You are no longer a slave to the law but have been justified as if you have no sin in Christ. Jesus Christ has set you free. Walk in the freedom that your heavenly Father sees you as if you have no sin.
