Freed From The Curse Of The Law

That is some title, no it is not a get out of jail free card. it is what Jesus has done for us on the Cross.

The Apostle Paul describes Christ Jesus as the one who has ” redeemed us from the curse of the law.” Galatians 3 verses 13 and 14  {Message Bible}.

“Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the cross, and at the same time dissolved the curse. And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham’s blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God’s life, His Spirit, in and with us by believing – just that way Abraham received it.”  BY FAITH.

This act manifested His Grace. Galatians 1 verse 6.

“The magnitude of His Love, in so far as He ‘gave Himself’ to achieve this. Galatians 2 verse 20.

Another consequence of the salvation Christ Jesus provided for all who are “In Christ Jesus.”  Galatians 3 verse 14.

Freedom from the Law. Galatians 5 verse 1.

The law was associated with bondage, and slavery, and although the Law functioned as a guide for the Israelites. Christians now have “The Law of Christ”. This is a result of The Spirits dynamic presence in us. The Spirit facilitates our spiritual growth.

Paul makes it clear that in Christ Jesus, “Christ Jesus has set us free” and also ensure that such freedom is maintained.

The law of Christ Jesus is not a new set of guidelines, that replaces or were added to the Old Testament, but rather the Law of Christ Jesus, relates to the Person of Jesus, who models the lifestyle he expects from His followers. Jesus is our perfect guide and constant companion who mentors believers personally and powerfully.

Our Lord and Our friend {Christ Jesus} is the comprehensive answer to the needs of humanity. His resources have been given through His salvation He offers. These resources are more then enough to both redeem and transform His followers.

We must all learn to comprehend what it is to be a follower of Christ Jesus, and all the awe and power that is available to us as we walk closer and closer with Our Lord and Our friend.

God Bless as you soak in the newness you have from accepting Christ Jesus as your own  Lord and Your Friend.
