Meditation


Scripture.  But before faith came, we were kept under the law, shut up unto the faith which would afterwards be revealed.  Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ, that we might be justified by faith.  But after that faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster.  Galatians 4:23-25  KJV

Here we find a description of faith and the law.  It tells us the Law came first after sin entered.  God established the Ten Commandments for the Jewish people to abide by.

When it was proved to them that they could not obey the ten simple commandments, but they had to make their own laws to prop up God's Law, He sent His Son to fulfill the Law.  Only Jesus fulfilled every commandment, and He came that all people might be reconciled to God.  God says so and He does not lie.

God speaks of the Law as being like a schoolmaster.  That was man's elementary schooling and man flunked!

God foresaw this and had a Plan from the outset of our fall from perfection.

God knows the depth, width and breadth of evil and is able to see far beyond our limited view.  He will never be outsmarted by evil.  Evil will never overcome God.  God cannot be brought down.

Now all that is required is to have Faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God who came to Save us from eternal life separated from the Goodness of God.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for the blood shed for me to have faith.  You paid the price.  What greater Love!  Give to me words that can express who You are and what You have done for me, to others.  Amen.
