πŸ‘‘ Applicable Liberty

Our Lord said: β€œYe shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” and β€œIf the Son, therefore, shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed” (John 8:32,36). Likewise St. Paul declares that believers in Christ have been made β€œfree from sin” and have become β€œservants to God,” who deals with us in grace (Rom. 6:22).

It is strange that so many sincere religious people actually wish to be in bondage to the Mosaic Law, which can only judge and condemn them for their sins. Peter called the law: β€œa yoke… which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear” (Acts 15:10). Paul called it β€œthe handwriting of decrees, that was against us, which was contrary to us” (Col. 2:14). He called it β€œthe ministration of death” and β€œthe ministration of condemnation” (II Cor. 3:7,9).

He challenged those who β€œdesired” to be under the law:

β€œTell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” (Gal. 4:21).

β€œFor as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written. Cursed is every one thatΒ continuethΒ not inΒ allΒ things which are written in the book of the law, to do them” (Gal. 3:10).

Thank God, β€œChrist hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us” (Gal. 3:13). Man always responds better to grace than to law. The law was β€œadded because of transgressions” (Gal. 3:19). β€œBy the law is the knowledge of sin” (Rom. 3:20). But Christ died for our sins and now true believers serve God from gratitude and love. Hence Rom. 6:14 says: β€œSin shall not have dominion over you, for ye are not under the law but under grace.” Since Christ has redeemed us from the law (Gal. 4:5) God says to every true believer:

β€œStand fast, therefore, in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage” (Gal. 5:1). source

Bible Verse for 3/22/19

Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. — Jeremiah 17:7-8
