Law of God | August 22
“The law and the prophets were until John. Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached, and everyone is pressing into it.
”And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tittle of the law to fail.
For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
“… let it be known to you, brethren, that through this Man is preached to you the forgiveness of sins;
”and by Him everyone who believes is justified from all things from which you could not be justified by the law of Moses.
Luke 16:16-17, John 1:17, Acts 13:38-39
Jesus, again You teach us that the law, given to Moses, has not changed. The 10 commandments count! Now we are reminded that through You, Father, comes grace and truth. The law counts but since every man has sinned, absent Your grace and forgiveness, we are lost.
Jesus, help us not look past the fact that Your word is truth. Cause us to seek the truth, daily, as we seek to know You on a personal basis, one that leads to our spending eternity with You and those that love You.
We know, Jesus, that as we love God, completely, and our neighbors as ourselves, that we are no longer judged by the law but we are judged by You. The straight edge of the law magnifies our sins and we need to stop sinning, but Jesus we can not do so in our own strength and wisdom. We seek to serve You and be led by You, every day. In Your Holy name, we pray, amen.
