The Law Is Not Of Faith (Galatians 3:12)

And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

Galatians 3:12 (KJV)

Anytime we are looking to our works or efforts as the reason for why we should be blessed, we are not operating in faith. Faith is to remove ourselves from the equation, and to look only to Jesus. Because of the finished works of Jesus the blessing has been made available, and faith is to be open and receptive for it to manifest in our lives.

Grace Builds Us Up (Acts 20:32)

And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.

Acts 20:32 (KJV)

Grace will always build us up. Religion tends to be about what we must do in order to earn favor with God, whereas grace is all about what Jesus has already done for us. Each day our practice therefore must be to remind ourselves, to confess, and to thank God that He has already made available anything we might need. As we remember our identity in Christ—that we have been made righteous in Him—we open ourselves to receiving the inheritance grace has already provided.

Light Unto The Upright (Psalm 112:4)

Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

Psalm 112:4 (KJV)

We are upright in the eyes of God through our faith in Jesus. As a result darkness has lost its power over us, and even in the midst of challenges and opposition there will be light. We may rely fully upon the gracious and compassionate nature of our heavenly Father, and we may stand firmly and securely upon His righteousness.

Bring Forth Much Fruit (John 15:5)

I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

John 15:5 (KJV)

Jesus is calling us to thrive by bringing forth much fruit in His name. Yet to do so we must bring Him into every area of our life, we must remember continuously that without Him we can do nothing that is of any lasting value. When we live in this continual fellowship with the Lord, we will indeed be the branches showing forth all of the marvelous fruits of salvation.

You Are Not Under The Law (Romans 6:14)

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

Romans 6:14 (KJV)

The purpose of the law of Moses was to bring people to an end of themselves. The law was given to recognize our need for a Savior. And so the law does exactly what it was designed to do: it keeps people in bondage to sin. Grace, on the other hand, liberates us from all guilt and condemnation, thereby enabling us to live right. Grace transforms us from the inside out, teaching us to live godly, victorious and overcoming lives. And grace is not a curriculum or a doctrine; grace is a Person, His name is Jesus.
