Riddle - What Kills and Points to Life?
What is the law? What is the Mosaic Law?
The Bible describes what the law is.
Galatians 3:24 New King James Version (NKJV)
“24 Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.”
There were civil and ceremonial laws given by Moses that were for Old Testament times.
The Mosaic Law is what we simply know as the Ten Commandments.
The law still has a function despite what some well-meaning Christians might think.
The law shows humanity’s total inability to be righteous and holy in order to see God.
The law points humanity to the cross as our only hope for salvation.
By his perfect life Jesus Christ, fully God and fully man, was the perfect unblemished sacrifice for our sin..
He received the wrath of God on the cross intended for sinners to pay the sin debt of us law breakers who repent and trust in Christ as Lord and Savior.
2 Corinthians 5:21 New King James Version (NKJV)
21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
Matthew 5:17-18 New King James Version (NKJV)
17 “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfill. 18 For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled.”
Praise God for the use and the function of the law for salvation.
Are you still under the impression that the law is evil?
When Jesus Christ was raised from the grave we who believe could rise above the condemnation through faith and the grace of our Savior.
My question to you is are you under condemnation or grace?
