LAW vs GRACE


Grace vs Law

    First let us ask these questions," Are Christians under the law? And if so which law? What does God say? First the apostles taught that the purpose we are saved by Grace through Faith without works {Romans 3:20 :28 Ephesians 2:7 – 10}, we are also saved unto works {Ephesians 27, 10}. Jesus Christ as our Savior is at the heart of this matter... As He alone makes the case for Grace.
    While it is true that Christians are not under the Mosaic law, we are not free from all law. Christians live according to a new law. The following four laws are inseparable and form the basis for Christians to be fruitful for the Glory of God.

#1.Is the Law of the Spirit; { Romans8:1-4}, because the holy spirit leads and empowers us to obey God. Simply put... You can't obey God without God.

#2. It is the Law of Christ; {Galatians 6:1-6}, because Christ is our example. Simply put... Without Christ we can do nothing that is pleasing to God.

#3. It is the Law of Liberty, {James 1:2-27}, not because we are free to do as we please... But because our condemnation was imputed to Christ and his Righteousness was imputed to us. Simply put... The Law of Liberty is not licensed to sin... It is now our nature to obey.

 
#4. It is the Royal Law:{ James 2:8-10}, because the sum of the Law is to love my neighbor as myself. Essentially speaking to love your neighbor as yourself encompasses the entire 10 Commandments of the Mosaic Law.

    Why is it not necessary to be under the Mosaic law? The answer is quite simple. Once a sinner receives Jesus Christ as their personal savior, the Righteousness of Christ is instantly imparted to the sinner. Secondly the righteousness of Christ is inpartedto the new believer. What does this mean? The imputation of Christ's Righteousness and ends the Law of condemnation. {Romans 8:1 ,4}.That and impartation of Christ Righteousness empowers us to live Godly in  this present world.{ Romans 7:5-6}.You see it is not the 10 Commandments that saves us... It is the tender commander, Jesus Christ, that saves . We are not led by the letter of the law, but by the better law.{ Hebrews 8: entire chat}.
       You see it is not the 10 Commandments that saves us... It is the tender commander, Jesus Christ, that saves us. We are not led by the letter of the law, but by the better law.{ Hebrews 8: entire chat}.
    I hope this has enlightened you and made you aware of righteous living, and hope it also enlightens you on the many ways the evil one tries to condemn by using the 10 Commandments against us by his lies of denunciation.
