Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us– for it is written, “CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO HANGS ON A TREE “—Galatians 3:13
Are you living Under The Law or are you living Under Grace? There are many Christians today who are still trying to be “legalist” who are still trying to fulfill the Law. Paul clearly teaches here “Anyone under the law is cursed”, why would you want to still live under the curse of the law?
For example, there is a Messianic Jewish group who teaches Circumcision is a salvation issue. They believe because God required circumcision under the Abrahamic Covenant, that its still required under the New Covenant.
This is a classic example of being a legalist. Trying to live under the law yet still claiming to be under grace. You cant be both, you are either under the law or under grace. Here is why
“If a man has committed a sin worthy of death and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree, Deuteronomy 21:22
Under the Mosaic Law anyone who committed a great sin should be put to death on a tree. As we know the wages of sin are death (Romans 6:23) Jesus took that curse for us and was crucified to a tree (Cross). If you repent of your sins and make Jesus your Lord, Jesus is the atonement for your sins.
This is why you cant live under the Law and Grace. Under Grace Jesus became cursed for your sins. Under the Law you are cursed and worthy of death. Repent and Trust in the Lord Jesus Christ to set your free Amen!
