I know that God only saves people because they believe in Jesus, the Christ. And not because they obey the law. That is why I also started to believe in Jesus. And thus God no longer sees me as a bad person.
Let me say it again: No man can be saved by keeping the law. And to be saved, I also need the Christ, just like you.
What if I started living according to Jewish law from now on; And suppose that I could then fully comply with that law (no man can do that, and no one does exactly what it says in the law), even then the law would absolutely not be able to save me.
Moreover, the law has nothing to say about me. For the Christ died for me on the cross.
Walk in love,
just as Christ also loved you,
and gave Himself up for us,
an offering and a sacrifice
to God as a fragrant aroma.
Husbands, love your wives,
just as Christ also loved the church
and gave Himself up for her,
And with Him my old self died. Everyone who has accepted Him has become a new person. The Christ, the Son of God, loves you and me, and I know that He lives in me, and also in you when you also have received Him.
If you have not yet received Him, I know that He wants you to receive Him, so that He can also lead you to the Father’s house and help you during your life here on earth.
When the Christ lives in us, our life is no longer controlled by the law, but by God!
We cannot be saved in any way by living by law. So it was absolutely necessary that the Christ died for us. And I’m glad that God was so good to me and saved me for eternity. This can also be your wealth!
