1 Corinthians 9:21 (NET)
To those free from the law I became like one free from the law (though I am not free from God’s law but under the LAW OF CHRIST) to gain those free from the law.

In the old covenant, people believed that salvation could be received by keeping the laws of God. That is what it means to be under the law. It means believing that the reason you will be saved is because of certain laws you can keep. But when a person believes that he receives salvation because of the sacrifice of Christ alone, that is what it means to be under grace.

Anyone who is a believer in Christ is not under the 613 laws of Moses. He is not even under the Ten Commandments. He is under grace; and is ruled by the LAW OF CHRIST.

Of the Ten Commandments, Jesus reiterated nine of them and gave us better context and understanding (see Matt 5-7). These are now known as the LAW OF CHRIST. They are based on love for God and love for neighbor. There are other instructions Jesus gave that were not captured by the Law of Moses. They include instructions concerning marriage and divorce, retribution, handling debts, prayer, handling anxiety and fear, forgiveness, etc.

Of the Ten Commandments, the only one that was not reiterated by the Lord for us was the law of the Sabbath. Christians are not under the Sabbath law, neither are we under the other 611 laws of Moses.

Sunday is not a Sabbath. The early church never worshiped on Saturday being the Sabbath, but they worshipped on Sunday because it was the day our Lord resurrected, and also the day of the Pentecost that ushered in the start of the church (see Acts 2:1). Since before the time of the Romans, Sunday has been the first day of the week, and believers have always worshipped on that day (see 1 Cor 16:2, Acts 20:7).

Go into today remembering that we are set free from the law of sin and death by the law of [the spirit of life in] Christ Jesus (Rom 8:2).
