As we continue to compare and contrast Mosaic Law with God’s moral law, the importance of placing our trust in the correct thing comes into focus. Applying our faith toward the wrong thing gives us no results. If we have more faith in what we do than in what Jesus did, that faith will become void; the law requires our performance, and therefore cancels out faith. To see the manifestations of what God has promised us, we simply need to believe Him. The confusion over what to have faith in began in the garden of Eden, when Adam and Eve ate from the wrong tree. The result was that they had faith in their own efforts to provide for themselves, instead of in God; this mindset still continues today. Knowing Jesus and His grace instead of the law and its constant demand for performance enables God to work on our behalf.
