Series: The People of God
Speaker: Jason Williams
In the sermon this past Sunday, we looked at how God used Moses to deliver His Law to His people, foreshadowing the Gospel that was to come. Jesus validated the Law by teaching that only those who are perfectly righteous, by obeying every letter of God’s Law, will be accepted into heaven as God’s people. Jesus obeyed the Law perfectly, qualifying Him to take our place on the cross and to take our punishment for our disobedience to the Law. Through Jesus, God made a way for His people to be made righteous by believing the Gospel. Through the Gospel, we have been forgiven for breaking God’s Law, allowing us to see God’s Law as good and right. This forgiveness and love from God encourage us to strive to obey God’s Law with the power of the Holy Spirit, knowing that we have already been rescued and accepted as God’s people.
