Victory Through Rule-Keeping or Through Grace?

'God's law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were.' Romans 5:20 NLT


Why did God establish a new covenant with His people through Jesus instead of continuing with the covenant He’d given to Moses? Because while the law had the power to let people know how far short they fell, it didn’t have the power to make them want to obey it. Let’s suppose you have a tendency to eat too much chocolate. You want to be free from the habit, so you make a law for…

The Sureness of God’s Witness

1 John 5:6-8

Intention of the LAW


1 Timothy 1:8

8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (KJV)



Spiritual Application:

The Law served a purpose, but God did not give it as a means of salvation. The Law condemns us; it reveals to man that he is a sinner in need of a Saviour. Under the Law the best man in the world is absolutely condemned, but under the gospel the worst man can be justified if he will believe…
