God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:20-21 NLT
The law of God is necessary. It tells us what sin is. It is a guide to live a live to bring honor and glory to God. However, we are sinners and often go against the law of God. We have a loving God who gives us the grace of forgiveness when we confess our sins. It is through Jesus Christ’s sacrifice that has taken our penalty for breaking God’s law so that we may have eternal life. Thank God for His mercy and grace towards us!
