LIBERTY! March 27th

This Sunday’s message is heavy stuff, but join me as we simplify our steps of salvation and peace with God. We are no longer subject to the Old Testament ceremonial laws because Christ fulfilled all the requirements, and, by Grace, He has given us total forgiveness. The Galatians had the full salvation and freedom of choosing to live Godly lives – free from the practice of the Jewish ceremonial laws.

So what does this mean for us today? Laws are strict requirements – obligating compliance. The more laws made, the more laws broken! Grace gives us a pathway around the practice of the Old Testament ceremonial laws. We are not required to comply with those laws. They were given to the Jews to point them to the work of Jesus on the cross. He completely fulfilled all the requirements and paid the price for us. Today we have access to God through Jesus – what a gift!

We are free from the penalty of sin when we accept Jesus as our Savior. This is a free gift — will we accept it? This was Paul’s message to the Galatian churches. It is the message to everyone today.

Practical steps for us this week:
Contemplate the message of the cross and the salvation Jesus gave us when He said, “It is finished!” (John 19:30)

*Rejoice because we have full access to God because of Jesus’ finished work.
