“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1)
Law: it’s about what you do.
Grace: it’s about what Christ did.
Be free to do what is right, not only to your benefit but also to the benefit of others as they understand it to be. Christ’s freedom vs. the slavery that comes by way of the Law (do’s & don’ts)
“For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.” (John 1:17)
Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
The Law is blurry, but Grace is clear.
The Law applies only to those who seem able. But Grace applies to all because no one is able to measure up to the Law. Only Christ did measure up and exceeded the requirements of the Law with love.
Law unveils our sins, while Grace sets us free from our sins. You might call it sin-freeness. But the minds of so many are still unprepared to even consider the possibility of being made without sin by Grace, being made anew without the implication or the factor of sin.
Our parents conceived us in sin, but Grace conceived us in Spirit to belong, not as slave to sin, but as children to God.
“The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children.” (Romans 8:16)
