Law vs. Grace

January 20, 2009

God’s laws are good…and for our good…to protect us…and to show us how much we need Him. Sadly, there are churches who add to God’s laws. That is what the leaders of Yeshua’s day had done…and He chastised them for it.

The law is designed to help us see our need for God and to draw us close to Him. The teachers of His day added to the laws making it harder for people to come to God.

Grace reassures us that, although we cannot do His laws perfectly, He loves us and will help us anyway. We cannot get ourselves saved. We cannot enter the narrow gate, nor can we stay on the narrow path, without His grace helping us. We cannot just live our own way. That is the broad path. He helps us through His love expressed in grace.
