THE TRUE FOUNDATION

Gal 2:21

I do not treat the grace of God as meaningless. For if keeping the law could make us right with God, then there was no need for Christ to die [NLT]

1 Cor 3:11

For no other foundation can anyone lay than that which is [already] laid, which is Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) [AMP]

Also read Col 2:8-11

In the early church, some teachers were teaching that the people needed to be circumcised and follow the laws of Moses because these laws were the foundation for relationship with God. These teachers were trying to lay a foundation for salvation that is false. They were trying to induce righteousness by legalism into the church. The church is built on the foundation of righteousness by faith in Christ Jesus.

Today, that spirit of religious legalism is still very much around, and it has modified its message. It still tries to seduce the church by emphasizing that breaking certain rules is the ultimate reason why people will go to hell (even though they have faith in Christ Jesus). It attempts to take the focus from Christ Jesus (and fellowship with Him) to rules and regulations.

As you go into today, determine to depend on Jesus alone for your salvation. He is the foundation of our faith and we should never let any form of legalism derail us.

Prayer:

Pray that the Lord will empower you to discern seducing spirits. Pray that your faith will grow as you depend on Christ alone for your salvation. Amen
