DIG for Thursday the 19th of May…..you must not try to fulfil the Ten Commandments…..1 Corinthians 15 v 56

Did you know that trying to uphold the law and keep the Ten Commandments would result in you seeing sin in your life?

Do you know that this will result in death in your life; death in terms of missing the abundance that God has for you?

I am saying these things as I’ve seen a Facebook friend take some abuse recently for having the audacity to speak out Biblical truths about the Ten Commandments.

I agree completely with what he has said, that the New Covenant born again believer is not required to try and fulfil the Ten Commandment.

Now, I am not saying that you can go out on a stealing and killing rampage!

What I am saying is that the Law and therefore the Ten Commandments are not for the born again believer to fulfil; Scripture clearly tells us this.

The Law is no longer in operation for us because of the finished work of Jesus Christ.

And before you get upset and annoyed, this also include the Ten Commandments.

What else is Paul speaking about when he says that the ordinances that was against us was nailed to the cross? (Galatians 2 v 14)

What else was Paul speaking about when he spoke of the ministration of death written and engraven in stone? (2 Corinthians 3 v 7)

Friends, you do not need to try and fulfil the Ten Commandments, once you realise what Jesus died for you will love Him so much that you will fulfil them without even trying!

The Lord does not need your performance; He has seen the performance of Jesus and because of your faith in Him deems you worthy.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I now live under grace and not under the law”.

1 Corinthians 15 v 56…..The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law


DIG for Wednesday the 18th of May…..forgiveness and reconciliation for all, but you still have to make a choice…..John 3 v 16

We seem to be getting bombarded these days with the doctrine of universalism, i.e. the belief that everyone is already saved through the finished work of Jesus.

I think this is a cunning plan of the enemy; if he cannot get men to stop believing in God then maybe he can get them to believe we have all been saved already.

The Word however is very clear on the matter in that there has to be a choice made by every individual with regards to Jesus.

Yes, because of the finished work of Jesus, everyone has been forgiven (Ephesians 1 v 7 and Colossians 1 v 14).

Yes, because of the finished work of Jesus Christ, everyone has been reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5 v 18 and 19).

However in order to be saved and made righteous (and receive the benefits of forgiveness and reconciliation) a man must believe these truths and must believe in Jesus and what He has done.

In order to be saved from perishing a man must believe in Jesus (John 3 v 16).

In order to be saved a man must believe in his heart and confess with his mouth that Jesus is the Son of God and was raised from the dead (Romans 10 v 9).

The fact that a choice has to be made is there in black and white in the Word of God.

Universalism does not stand up to scrutiny if you rightly divide the Word.

The Word says that God wants all to be saved (2 Peter 3 v 9), but Jesus Himself stated that many were walking on the path to destruction.

Universalism is as dangerous as atheism, and will keep people from an eternity with the Lord.

Choosing Jesus to be his Lord and Saviour is a choice every man needs to make for himself.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that salvation and righteousness are available as free gifts, and thank You that I have chosen to accept them”.

John 3 v 16…..For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life
