Can I use a banana as a means of transportation? NO! Nor can I use the law as a means of righteousness – the law gets me TO righteousness but it doesn’t keep me in righteousness nor can it be used as a tool to evaluate righteousness and for a very simple reason – THE SEED has come!
“Why, then, was the law given at all? It was added because of transgressions until the Seed to whom the promise referred had come. The law was given through angels and entrusted to a mediator. A mediator, however, implies more than one party; but God is one.” – Galatians 3:19-20
The life and message of Jesus, Paul and every other writer in the New Testament was and is a big glowing neon sign saying, “HELLO THE SEED HAS COME, THE PROMISE IS HERE” – Business as usual changed with Jesus!
We are one with God – “Reconciled” to God the moment, the very nanosecond we accept Him in Faith – After that Faith grows and Love grows as we Rest in THE SEED’s work on the cross knowing that the law is NO longer our measuring stick!
The law which was given through the angels and entrusted to a mediator, implies that more than one party was involved BUT God IS One and God Is Love! As we realize the purpose of the law, we can grow to see His Love in a whole new and complete and Holistically Healing way, The Way, The SEED – JESUS CHRIST! It is Not the seed of the law that ever healed anyone – it was, is and always will be Faith in The Seed which is Rest that ALL has been completed and you are as Holy as He Is the moment you accept Him!
The Growth of The Seed is the Growth of Faith (Rest) and Love – which Only happens as we let go of the idea that the law has anything to do with righteousness!
Here is a simple meditation for you to begin to see and appreciate The Seed. Take a few quiet moments and just close your eyes and notice your breathing as you do:
Breathe in and say:
“Father Your seed”
Breathe out and say:
“Is All I need”
Practice this till you begin to see that what He has done for you makes you complete!
