There are cherry pickers out there and they are stealing life from you! There are cherry pickers out there and they will give you a false sense of security that will take you away from God’s Amazing Grace!
“Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.” – Hebrews 5:8-10
What are you obedient to? What is it that qualifies your standing with God? What qualified Jesus and His standing with God?
Jesus did Not obey the law – He obeyed God! Once you understand this fact – it will make you Very Happy! It will make you even Happier IF you live in the light of this because it’s called Grace!
Rarely a day goes by without someone asking me, “What do you mean we are no longer under the law? To which I usually ask – “What do you think Grace is?”
Grace IS following Christ rather than your own ego! Grace IS that by which you are saved! Grace IS knowing that the law is no longer your task master – Jesus IS the end of the law for ALL who believe, His Grace is sufficient!
Let’s look at the alternative that most Christians follow. It is at best watered down law designed by satan to lull you into a false sense of security. See if this sounds familiar, “well you aren’t supposed to break the Sabbath but I just need to get a quick quart of milk for tomorrow so I will have breakfast” or this, “well it’s really not a sin cause I have to work to be a good father and everyone knows that is what God wants” or here is my personal favorite, “well at least I am not a murderer or even worse!”
What am I saying? “You are no longer under the law you are under Grace!” I am saying it’s impossible to go on sinning once in Christ because you are Not under law!
Once in Christ what is growing is your ability to Love NOT your ability to follow law! Take a close look above and tell me why it says “OBEY HIM” as opposed to other things it could say in this little phrase, “the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him…”
