Romans 10:4 “For CHRIST is the end of the law for righteousness to everyone who believes! Hallelujah!
Embracing Law’s AUTHOR and SAVIOUR!
There’s reverence found in one’s solemn behavior where preference is given…
(instead of “deferred”)
…to The ONE due our praise! Yes to JESUS our SAVIOUR yet found are delays and undue hesitations.
See those yet law bound when no flesh e’er kept it! But GOD sent HIS SON WHO fulfilled it — forever!
How reverent then those who acknowledge their failures! Those souls who believe HE alone paid for sins!
What service they render, both humbled and broken, since GOD put our sentence of death upon HIM!
How much more then those whose faith isn’t in Self…will lead others to freedom found only in CHRIST!
As HIServant grateful HE fully paid my sin debt so that I can live for HIM today without shame,
Devotional: Romans 8:3-4 “For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh,
GOD did by sending HIS own SON in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: HE condemned sin in the flesh,
that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to THE SPIRIT.”
Also read Matthew 5:17-22!
Point being nowhere in the Old or New Testament do we have a human example who never sinned.
In fact, Paul points out for us that he couldn’t keep it either. The Pharisee of the Pharisees, zealous for the Law, best of the best claims the title “Chief of Sinners!”
But so many yet today cling to the Law which CHRIST already fulfilled.
They reject Calvary’s payment and ASSUME that a CHRISTian is a lawless soul who is hell bound.
But none can keep the Law sufficient to earn them eternal life! Can’t and hasn’t happened — ever.
All have fallen immeasurably short. Do we abandon then doing good or just serving ourselves as gluttons? In no way!
So I bow this heart and my head yet again in great thanksgiving because CHRIST rose from the dead to secure eternal like for sinners…even me!
Therefore! Let’s do our best for HIM daily while always resting completely in…HIS Finished work for us!
Serve relentlessly and always in love!
Amen and amen.
