MANY DO NOT REALIZE THAT THE LAW (TEN COMMANDMENTS) WAS GIVEN TO THE JEWS AS A COVENANT. (Deu 4:13) “He declared to you his covenant, the Ten Commandments, which he commanded you to follow and then wrote them on two stone tablets.”
YET AS GOD’S MORAL LAW, THE WHOLE WORLD (JEWS AND GENTILES) WILL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE TO IT.
(Rom 3:19) “Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be silenced and the whole world held accountable to God.”

HOWEVER, GOD SENT HIS SON TO REDEEM THOSE UNDER LAW (NOT ONLY JEWS BUT GENTILES AS WELL) THAT WE MIGHT RECEIVE THE FULL RIGHTS OF SONS.
(Gal 4:4-7) “But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.”

YOU SEE, WHEN CHRIST CAME, HE FULFILLED ALL THE RIGHTEOUS REQUIREMENTS OF THE LAW IN US. HE PAID WHAT WE CANNOT PAY AND OBEYED WHAT WE CANNOT OBEY.
(Rom 8:3-4) “For what the law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. And so he condemned sin in sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.”

CHRIST BECAME THE MEDIATOR OF THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE AND PLACED THOSE WHO BELIEVED IN HIM, UNDER IT.
(Rom 6:14) “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

FOR THIS REASON, THE BIBLE SAYS, “CHRIST IS THE END OF THE LAW SO THAT THERE MAY BE RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES.”
(Rom. 10:4) “Christ is the end of the law so that there may be righteousness for everyone who believes.”

THE SAD THING IS, AFTER CHRIST REDEEMED US FROM THE LAW, SO THAT WE CAN ENJOY THE FULL BENEFITS OF THE NEW COVENANT OF GRACE THAT CHRIST MEDIATED, MANY PULPITS BRING US BACK TO THE LAW. BELIEVERS ARE PLACED BACK UNDER THE YOKE OF SLAVERY TO THE LAW BY FEEDING THEM WITH OLD COVENANT DOS AND DON’TS AND IT’S RELIGIOSITIES INSTEAD OF CHRIST, HIS LOVE, HIS GRACE, HIS NEW COVENANT, HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS AND ALL THE BENEFITS THEREOF.

PETER WAS RIGHT WHEN HE DEFENDED THE GENTILE CHRISTIANS WHO WERE BEING FORCED BY CHRISTIAN PHARISEES (CIRCUMCISION GROUP) TO EMBRACE AND BE SUBJECT TO THE ENTIRE LAW.
(Act 15:10-11) “Now then, why do you try to test God by putting on the necks of the disciples a yoke that neither we nor our fathers have been able to bear?” No! We believe it is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved, just as they are.”

PUTTING YOUR TRUST IN THE “LAW” ALIENATES YOU FROM CHRIST! BEAR IN MIND THAT THE “LAW” AND “GRACE” ARE TWO DIFFERENT COVENANTS.
(Gal 5:4) “You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.”

REMEMBER, ONLY UNDER GRACE (NEW COVENANT), CAN SIN LOSE ITS POWER OVER YOU.
(Rom 6:14) “For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.”

YOU SEE, GRACE IS THE ONLY WAY OUT OF SIN!
