A Changed Heart (John 14:15)

How does the Law of God relate to the Grace of God? Man believes that he loves God One constant among human beings is that we all believe we love God and are right with God. If you look around our culture here in the South virtually everyone “believes in God,” “loves God,” and is “going to heaven when they die.” However, when confronted with the Law of God, men usually turn to one of two things, legalism or license.…

The Gospel – Law

As we continue to look at the Gospel, we now turn to the purpose of the Law. As inherently sinful people how can we ever overcome our personal sin, and how can we overcome the problems of human society? The next component in the Gospel is the Law. Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the…

The Right Use of the Law (John 7:19-25)

The people are questioning where Jesus’ teachings come from because He teaches differently than what they have heard. Jesus shows them that He is not teaching for His own selfish reasons, but He is seeking God’s glory. He then uses their hatred of Him for healing on the Sabbath day to expose that they are breakers of Moses Law and stand condemned. Moses gave the Law Just as Moses came down from Mt. Sinai with the Law of God, so…

The Cultic Laws

After looking at the Priesthood and Tabernacle, we can see the Gospel clearly presented; but what about the cultic laws? What is a Christian supposed to do with the dietary restrictions of the Old Testament? What about the laws concerning tattoos and facial hair? What about the feasts and the other laws? For I am the LORD that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy.¬†This…

The Old Covenant of Law (Part 2)

We saw that the Law was used to bring conviction of sin, but that the Law lacked power to make us right with God. The Law was given to teach us that we need a Savior. Now that we are saved, what is the purpose of the Law? Is the law then against the promises of God? God forbid: for if there had been a law given which could have given life, verily righteousness should have been by the law.…

The Old Covenant of Law (Part 1)

Sermon previously titled: Law Is Not Our Saviour Know ye not, brethren, (for I speak to them that know the law,) how that the law hath dominion over a man as long as he liveth? For the woman which hath an husband is bound by the law to her husband so long as he liveth; but if the husband be dead, she is loosed from the law of her husband. So then if, while her husband liveth, she be married…

The Right Use of the Law (John 1:15-18)

John the Baptist testifies to the Deity of Jesus John the Baptist confirms the Apostle John’s teaching that Jesus is God in the flesh. He declares that Jesus, Who was born after him, actually preceded him in existence. John also declares that Jesus was greater than he was. John the Baptist is very clearly declaring Jesus to be the Eternal God become flesh. In Jesus we receive an overflow of God’s grace because of God’s grace All humans receive an…
