Hebrews 8:11-13 (NKJV) 11 None of them shall teach his neighbor, and none his brother, saying, ‘Know the Lord,’ for all shall know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them. 12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.” 13 In that He says, “A new covenant,” He has made the first obsolete. Now what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.
Through the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ there is full forgiveness of sin. For Jesus paid it all. All to Him we owe. The Mosaic Law is fulfilled in Christ, because of Jesus’ redemption power, we are no longer under the Law rather we are under grace. The Mosaic Law is the old covenant, it serves as a tool to expose our sins. The Law has done that, and it has condemned us. But our sins are forgiven because of what Christ did for us on the cross at Calvary. God has brought us into a new covenant of grace. Because of what Christ did for us on the cross at Calvary, God can now extend His grace to all who will accept His Son Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16 NKJV). God created this new covenant of grace because the old covenant could not save us. There are many believers who wants to remain under the Mosaic Law. They are headstrong on keeping the Sabbath day, but if they really study the Mosaic Law and if they are honest, they will know they are not keeping the Law. They fall short, because the Law was never designed to save, rather its purpose is to reveal to us how short we fall from the glory of God. We need to come to God for grace, and accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. For we all have fallen short of the glory of God. And when we accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior, we are born again. Then the Holy Spirit can produce in us a holy life when we submit our lives to Him. When we submit to the Holy Spirit, He can produce in us the fruit of the Spirit which serves as the evidence of our salvation. My friends, we are to live by grace. We are to grow in grace. It is God’s grace that justifies us, sanctifies us, and one day it will glorify us. To grow in grace, we need to submit to the Holy Spirit who can transform our lives with the Word of God.
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
