The Purpose Of The Law

0 comments

19 What purpose then does the law serve? It was added because of transgressions, till the Seed should come to whom the promise was made; and it was appointed through angels by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator does not mediate for one only, but God is one (Galatians 3:19-20 NKJV).

 

Every government on the face of this earth has laws to guide its citizen how to live their lives. If we are foreigners in the country we are visiting then we have to respect the laws of the land and we cannot apply the laws of our countries in the country we are visiting. What purpose does the law serve? The law is given to guide our lives and if we break the law, we will pay the consequence for the law we break. If certain crime for instance "Cybercrime" is not known in a given country, that country will add laws for that particular crime.

 

 

The Covenant Keeping God

If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. (1 John 1:9)

 

When I read and meditate upon this verse again today, all of a sudden the beauty of His heart (His forgiving heart) appears in my mind, I am in awe and speechless how the Creator of heaven and earth in Christ Jesus chose to die on the cross for those who believe in Him to pay the penalty of their sins. The cross is the witness of the forgiving God in an unforgiving world. The word “if” is a condition set before us, are we willing to confess our sins? Unless we are aware that we own our own sins, we will not be willing to confess them for we will find so many excuses to defend ourselves trying to prove that it is not really our sins.

Do No Harm

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NKJV)


Those who work in the medical field know the term “Do No Harm”. Why is it so important? It is important because patients put their lives in the hands of those who work in the medical field (doctors, nurses, psychologists, pharmacists, etc.). What if some of those who work in the medical field do not really know what they are doing? Isn’t it dangerous? What if they twist the truth and manipulate patients to benefit themselves? What if they really do not have any empathy towards patients at all? Since no one can read anyone else’s mind nor know the intent of their heart, it is important to know about the background of those you are going to trust your life in.

 

 

 

The Tongue Of The Learned

“The Lord God has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary. He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear To hear as the learned. The Lord God has opened My ear; And I was not rebellious, Nor did I turn away. (Isaiah 50:4-5 NKJV)


The Messiah, Jesus Christ Himself declared through the mouth of His prophet “Isaiah” how He used His tongue, in that He said,  “The Lord God has given Me The tongue of the learned, That I should know how to speak A word in season to him who is weary.” Look carefully when He said, “…the tongue of the learned”. Jesus explained clearly that He used His tongue to say only things He heard from His Father and in obedience to His Father as the learned He spoke the word of comfort to those who were weary.

Tearing The Veil

21 that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me. (John 17:21 NKJV)


“…that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.” Why is it so important for Jesus to say “that the world may believe that You sent Me”. Jesus wants the world to see that His mission is to reset the original sin to original glory, so the believing sinner can be one with God. In order to make this happen, Jesus must die and through His blood, the veil that separates sinners from God will be torn from top to bottom – His shed blood is the key to the Holy of Holies!

Create In Me A Clean Heart, O God

Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me. (Psalm 51:10 NKJV)


Have you ever heard how people say that “Time changes things”? Is it true that time changes things? Or is it God through His Spirit that renews our heart? God through His Spirit works from within our heart and as He renews our heart, He puts the desire in us to obey Him as we make changes. In other words, time will not make any changes in us, what we do with that time as we invite God to make changes from within us and as we take action in obedience to Him, changes will take place.
