I Love the Law
There is but One who did not sin, He did not come from the first man Adam, He was born of a woman but conceived of by the Holy Spirit, the Son of God Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of man” (John 1:1-4). God Himself came in the form of a Man and did what no man could do, live a sinless life, do God’s will. What does the Law of the Lord do? It turns your eyes off of yourself and turns them to the Lamb of God Jesus Christ, the One who is the total embodiment of God’s Holy Law. The writers of the New Testament speak often of God’s Law, Paul held the Law of the Lord in high regard. Paul said this of the Law: “Therefore the law was our tutor to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith” (Galatians 3:24). The law shows us our sin, it shows us that He is Holy and we are not, it shows us our need for a Savior.
Salvation always has been and is by the grace of God alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Moses saved by faith in the promise, Abraham saved by faith in the promise, the prophets saved by faith in the promise, all men of old where saved by faith in the promise that God would send a Savior to redeem them. All of time focuses on one instance in time, Jesus Christ redeeming mankind on the cross. All men of old, before Christ, where saved by faith looking forward to the promised redemption that would come by the grace of God in the Savior, and all men are saved by faith looking back to the redemption that comes by the grace of God in the sacrifice of the Savior Jesus Christ. “There is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12). Why do I love the Law of the Lord? Because it is the Law of the Lord that led me to Jesus Christ, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life! Jesus said: “The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand. Repent, and believe in the gospel” (Mark 1:15). The time truly is fulfilled and the Kingdom of God truly is at hand, salvation is by the grace of God alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Thank you Lord!
