The Kitchen Table Day 14
Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary. Galatians 3:19
The law, written on the walls of our minds and monuments, is good but it’s not God. This life that Jesus gives us through faith is lived in relationship to His Holy Spirit, who is God. The law was and is given to reveal our disbelief and disobedience. The law of God was given by angels; the love of God was revealed by God Himself. That’s why this relationship is a face to face experience with Jesus that each of us must know personally. Now sin for us is anything that grieves and quenches the Spirit of God in our lives. And there are promises in this relationship that give purpose, power, and passion to this life. Don’t make this about rules, make it about your relationship with the Holy Spirit. That’s where life is.
