Galatians 6:2 (NET)
Carry one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the LAW OF CHRIST.

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.

Memunat had a conversation with her pastor that went thus:
Memunat: Pastor, I have been studying the Bible and have found that there are over 600 laws in the Old Testament. But I Have observed that we do not follow many of them as Christians. Why?

Pastor Ben: Because we are no more under the law as Christians. We are now under grace. Read Romans 6:14.

Memunat: ok sir. But does it mean we can do anything we like since we are no more under any law?

Pastor Ben: When a person is under grace, he has been set free from the slavery of sin and the law, and is now brought into God’s eternal kingdom. He has been set free from the law of sin and death and now translated into the kingdom of God. This kingdom is regulated by the law of life and peace. Anyone in this kingdom now lives according to the LAW OF CHRIST. He is not lawless.

When Jesus came, he made it clear that he did not come to destroy the law, but to fulfill it (read Matthew 5:17). And that is what happens to a person who is in Christ. The righteous requirement of the law is fulfilled in him (read Rom 8:4). This is made possible by the grace of God administered to him by the Holy Spirit within him.

Under the law, people transgressed, and that was why there were the [atoning] sacrifices and the high priest who made atonement for the people. Under grace, people can transgress Christ's law (1 John 3:4), and that is why we have the atoning sacrifice of Christ and His priesthood (read 1 John 2:1-2).

Go into today thanking the Lord for bringing you into His glorious kingdom.
