You may think that most of the time I seem to be writing about the differences between the Old and new covenants, between law and grace.
However it has to be said that there are some things in common between these two covenants.
Both covenants are dependant upon faithfulness and obedience.
Now this may surprise you given what I normally write about grace.
Let me enlighten you.
The Old covenant is dependant upon the faithfulness and obedience of men.
The New Covenant is also dependant upon faithfulness and obedience, but not from men.
The New Covenant was put into place through the faithfulness and obedience of Jesus Christ.
We have the great blessing of living under grace and not under law, where it is not our performance that is important.
Through the excellent performance of Jesus, through His finished work, we have been provided with all spiritual blessings required for life and godliness (Ephesians 1 v 3 and 2 Peter 1 v 3).
Our religious performance is not important in the eyes of God; He is content to look at the performance of His Son.
Law was (and still is) all about what men do, grace is all about what Jesus has done!
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I am very fortunate to live under grace and not under law”.
Romans 6 v 14…..For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace
