the fulfillment of the law through Christ
Text: Romans 8:1-4
We need to hear the Gospel. Every one of us. Every day. Over and over again. Because we are a sinful and forgetful people. We always have been. And no matter how many times and how many ways God’s love and Christ’s perfect sacrifice have been explained to us, we still forget it. I sure do.
I forget it when I sin.
I forget it when I believe that that sin has power over me.
I forget it when I seek first anything that is not Christ and his righteousness.
Sinful and forgetful, every one of us.
And yet, there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
Over and over, God’s word tells us The Plan – in different ways and styles and tenses. And we must return to it daily to be reminded just how wide and deep and true and perfect the plan really is. Lest we forget. Because we will. And we mustn’t.
Read it again today, friends. In four short verses, the gospel plan is told.
“For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do.”
Remember it, sisters. Thank Him for it. Walk according to the Spirit in confidence and in anticipation of the Plan completed on the Day of Jesus Christ!
