Boast In The Law

You who boast in the Law, through your breaking the Law, do you dishonor God? Romans 2:23

There are many groups out there, some even claim to follow Jesus, who boast in following the Law (Torah) however the Bible clearly tells us we are all sinners and nobody is righteous. Often times we allow our “religion” to be the means of our salvation and not Jesus Christ, who is the only one who can provide us salvation

Does that mean we should willfully sin? Absolutely No! If you are truly a Christian, you repented (turned away) from your evil ways and allow the Holy Spirit to sanctify and work in you. However for anyone to claim they are saved by follow The Law (Torah) would be blasphemy as that would mean they have never sinned. We have all fallen short (sinned) of the glory of God (Romans 3:23)

“Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill. Matthew 5:17

Jesus has fulfilled The Law, many have a hard time understanding or accepting this. Essentially Jesus is The Law, through only him we can be saved. Jesus reflected on the principles of The Law at the sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5) Jesus is our Law and Sabbath, all things have come through him and are accomplished through him

If you don’t understand this, you don’t truly understand Christ and what he has accomplished for all of us who call him Lord

Heavenly Father, we pray that your salvation and truth, may be made known to those who seek in Jesus Name Amen!
