THE LAW’S EXPECTATION

10222015-Thursday


“Then Moses came and recounted to the people all the words of the Lord and all the ordinances; and all the people answered with one voice and said, ‘All the words which the Lord has spoken we will do’” (Exodus 24:3).

The expectation of those having known the grace of God’s call is they will live as an obedient people. Not that we find God’s favor because we have lived moral lives but, rather, because we have known his favor the more diligently we pursue a moral life. While those who say, “I’m no longer under the Law, but grace” think they are espousing some sort of advanced spiritual maturity, the reality is God’s grace imposes upon us more responsibility and a greater diligence for faithful living than the Law ever could.
