What the Law could not do, Grace in the form of Jesus Christ did.
The law of Moses was unable to save us because of the weakness of our sinful nature. So God did what the law could not do. He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have. And in that body God declared an end to sin’s control over us by giving his Son as a sacrifice for our sins. He did this so that the just requirement of the law would be fully satisfied for us, who no longer follow our sinful nature but instead follow the Spirit.
Thank You for today. What the law could not do for us, You did. The law could not redeem us. It could not offer eternal salvation because it was powerless to do anything other than point out our sinful nature. But because of Your great love for us, You redeemed us by offering Your one and only Son Jesus Christ. Thank You for that ultimate sacrifice.
Thank You for the amazing gift of eternal life that we do not deserve but which You give so freely. All that is required of us is to believe in the One You sent. Use us to open eyes and ears of those around us who do not believe. Those lost souls who are living in darkness. Use us in mighty ways to touch the lost world. Help each of us to lay down our burdens at Your feet so that we are free and unemcumbered to share Your love with all. You truly desire good and perfect things for each of us. You do not want us to be burdened or heavy laden. Empower us to walk in the freedom that Christ came to give us.
It is in His powerful and holy name that we pray.
