Understanding law and grace

"For you to experience the intimate love of God, it is vital that you understand the difference(s) between law and grace."

Hey Joel...simple, but i found to be so true...a year ago i would have been confused at that statement...probably would have said that the guy who wrote that was "causey"...then i got branded "causey" for preaching the same thing...now i realize how true it really is...now i am having fun rightly dividing the Word these days...

Joel B. said...

Yep, me too... I also used to think that way. Rightly dividing the word of truth causes others to look at us as loonies, but you're right - it's so much fun and it's, well, a matter of speaking the truth!

GRACE!! let it reign...

If we humble before God, we see His grace. If we humble before man, we see Law...!

Praise God, we are humble in His eye!!!

...and the ultimate form of pride is to reject Gods righteousness and rely on our own...

Alan,

I never thought of it in those terms, but it's so true! Man is always willing to give us law and rules when we submit to Him, but God is a grace giver.
