Summary: Do not live by works of the law or mix Grace and the Law but live by Grace
May the peace of the Lord be with you.
Topic: NO ONE IS JUSTIFIED BY THE WORKS OF THE LAW
Romans 3:19-20 King James Version (KJV)
19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
Hallelujah beloved. I would like us to thank God Almighty for making Grace available to us through His Son Jesus Christ who is Grace.
Beloved, as the scripture says above, "by the law shall no man be justified before Him", nobody who is under the law or operates by the law shall be justified before God.
Beloved, the law makes us know what sin is. It gives us the knowledge of sin. The knowledge of sin brings guilt, condemnation and death.
The knowledge of sin makes us know, no one is righteous and no one can become righteous by his own works.
Beloved when you know all the laws that God gave to Israel, not just the ten commandments but all of the about 613 laws Israel had to obey, you would know that as you struggle to obey one, you go against another.
The Book of James makes us understand that He who said don't commit adultery, the same said do not steal so if you don't commit adultery but steal you are still guilty of the law.
Beloved, Jesus also makes us understand that the law is not only broken by actions but by intent as well so He explained that if you look at a woman lustfully, you have already committed adultery with her in your heart.
Beloved, if you want to live under the law, that is prove or obtain your righteousness by works you will miss it and fail woefully. You can never become righteous when you try living under the law.
God knows this so He has given you Grace, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Live by Grace and Grace alone then your justification and righteousness would be by Grace, because you would be imputed with the righteousness of Jesus Christ.
The mistake most Christians of today do is that, they mix Grace with the law. When you mix these two, you produce death. Grace stands alone and doesn't need the law to be complete.
Grace is complete and has no law in Him. Grace is full with everything in Him, don't pollute Him with the law. Live free of the law, don't try to justify yourself by works of the law for it is impossible to do so, live under Grace and be made righteous before God by Grace in Jesus name:
For *IT'S ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. If we follow Him and believe in Him who is Grace, we would be justified and made righteous by Grace.
Prayer: Father please help me change my thinking to fully operate under Grace but not mix Grace with the law or operate under the law in Jesus name. Amen.
