Are You Of the Works of the Law or Are You of Faith

4 September 2019

Summary

If we feel we constantly have to do something to get something from God, we must ask ourselves if we are living by the works of the law, or by faith. In the Old Testament, the Law of Moses focused on works, and demanded that the people do something, first, to get God to bless them. The mindset that results from this actually encourages faith in our own works instead of in the finished works of Jesus Christ. By contrast, living under the grace that came by Jesus requires belief in what He has done. This even extends to what we say; although our words carry great weight, what we declare will never be more powerful than what Jesus already did. This means that we no longer have to live based on what we do; we are now free to live based on what Jesus did, and our belief in that. We see results when we act on our faith in Him, without any interference from religious thinking.
