DIG for Saturday the 25th of February…..why would you want to live under law…..Galatians 5 v 1

Paul’s letter to the Galatians is one full of warnings, full of Paul being amazed at their behaviour.

I have to admit I think I must feel a bit like Paul when I preach grace and yet Christians reject it and want to live under the law.

That may sound a bit harsh to you but that is what people are doing when they reject the message of grace.

Paul called the Galatians foolish, wondering why they would not obey the truth he preached in Christ (Galatians 3 v 1).

Paul was amazed and astounded at how they had removed themselves from the truth he preached about grace (Galatians 1 v 6).

Paul warned them against going from grace back into the slavery that was law (Galatians 5 v 1).

I see the same around me today!

We live past the time when law was the way to live; this ended when Jesus said, “It is finished”.

We are not under law but under grace (Romans 6 v 14 and 15).

As Paul did, I encourage you to embrace the truth, embrace the grace message and live as if you know that you are under the New Covenant.

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I live under the New Convened, that I live under grace”.

Galatians 5 v 1…..Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage
