The law is good; it produces LIFE when you allow God to write it on your heart. This is the New Covenant of Grace.
We must admit our limitations in understanding and appropriating the New Covenant, apart from the grace of God. What Grace is to the New Covenant is what Law is to the Old Covenant. The principles and purposes of God did not change because of the change in covenant. The Law God gave Israel is still […]
There is the Law as a dispensation based on the 613 commandments (not just 10) and there is the Law as God’s ways, which we see throughout the Scriptures. It is this second one that we are focusing on in this message.
