Making The Law More Powerful
If I had to earn my way into Heaven by following the law and living a particular way, prior to being born again, I would not make it. I would not make it even today after making very significant changes in my lifestyle and approach to God. Since I have accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and believing my salvation is through His blood I am saved from sin and death. Does this mean I can act in any way I wish? Of course not. As a reflection of Jesus Christ my desire is live a life that honors the fact that Jesus pulled me from the depths, stood me on solid ground and said, not today, you are Mine and I am yours.
Romans 3 NKJV
21 Now we see how God does make us acceptable to him. The Law and the Prophets tell how we become acceptable, and it isn’t by obeying the Law of Moses.
22 God treats everyone alike. He accepts people only because they have faith in Jesus Christ.
23 All of us have sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.
24 But God treats us much better than we deserve, and because of Christ Jesus, he freely accepts us and sets us free from our sins.
25-26 God sent Christ to be our sacrifice. Christ offered his life’s blood, so by faith in him we could come to God. And God did this to show that in the past he was right to be patient and forgive sinners. This also shows that God is right when he accepts people who have faith in Jesus.
27 What is left for us to brag about? Not a thing! Is it because we obeyed some law? No! It is because of faith.
28 We see that people are acceptable to God because they have faith, and not because they obey the Law.
29 Does God belong only to the Jews? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, he is!
30 There is only one God, and he accepts Gentiles as well as Jews, simply because of their faith.
31 Do we destroy the Law by our faith? Not at all! We make it even more powerful.
