Law and Grace

 

It is a very important thing for us to see that, because God is one, that there must be a unity and continuity in all that He does.  It is impossible for Him not to require us to love Him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength, and our neighbor as ourselves.  His eyes are too holy to look on sin, and only the pure in heart shall see God.  The Bible is clear on these things.

 

That being said, it is also true that God has drawn a contrast between Moses and Christ.  “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.” (Joh 1:17)  Levi was established a priest under Moses, but Jesus was from Judah, a priest forever after the order of Melchisedec.    “If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need was there that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?” (Heb 7:11)

 

It will be the purpose of articles that are posted in this section to draw some distinctions between law and grace, and also to affirm the unity of God and His eternal purpose in Christ to save His people from their sins.  In the chart below are titles of articles posted to date, and descriptions of their content.   Worthy, thoughtful articles are solicited for this site.  Send them to budpow at ureach.com.  use @ for “at” in the address—we try to defeat spiders and spammers.
