God’s Law and Christ’s Obedience

August 10, 2017

“…by one man’s (Adam’s) disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man’s (Jesus’) obedience many will be made righteous” (Romans 5:19 NKJV). People try to obey God’s law in order to earn His blessing or escape His punishment. Sometimes they succeed but only for a season; then they find themselves breaking God’s law again. God, by His grace, solves the problem of seasonal obedience by making the obedience of Christ our escape from God’s wrath and our access to His blessing. Thank You, Jesus! I trust in Your perfect obedience which makes me forever righteous; God is pleased with me.
