HOLY LAWS FOR UN-HOLY PEOPLE
Gods laws are perfect and clean, holy and without blemish, but the only issue was that it was given to people who were unholy, and very imperfect. That’s why despite how perfect the law seemed, it could never really save anyone, yet people just seemed to get farther and farther away from God.
The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins.”
But glory be to God, He sent His son down in a body just like ours, a body which could be broken, and he took in that body the nature of sin and destroyed it. So now we have access to God’s riches and sanctified nature. Through Christ, we can now be regarded as worthy to receive God’s pearls, and we can now be regarded as Holy, hallelujah. Now it’s not about trying to keep some laws, but about accessing God’s nature through Jesus. Focus on this new nature, and your new status as being Holy (separated by God) and you will live just like that.
