As I’ve said in the last couple of DIGs there are lots of types and shadows about Jesus in the Word.
Another of these is the Sabbath.
Paul himself tells us that the Sabbath is indeed a shadow of Jesus (Colossians 2 v 16 and 17).
He also says that now that Jesus has come we no longer need to partake in the shadows.
So we no longer have to adhere to what the law calls the Sabbath.
But the keeping of the Sabbath is in the Ten Commandments Vic, don’t we still have to keep them.
No we do not!
These commandments are under the law but we no longer live under the law but under grace (Romans 6 v 14 and 15).
We are no longer under the Ten Commandments as the “real deal” is now here and we are under grace.
So can I kill and steal and do all those other things banned by the Ten Commandments?
The answer is no and if you understand grace you will not want to!
That is the key; the law reinforces sin but grace frees you from sin.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I now live under grace and not under the law”.
Colossians 2 v 16 and 17…..Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ
