I have noticed that some people are under the misconception that ‘works’ will get them saved, or in a higher position with God. If you say that your a good person, look at the 10 commandments. If you’ve broken even one, according to God’s word; you’ve broken them all.That doesn’t mean we don’t have a way to Salvation. Very simply Salvation comes only from the grace of God. “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8
I know that none of us are capable of not making mistakes, but through Jesus we always have His Blood to cover our sins. That of course is not a license to do as you wish. This is a reminder that we should always strive to do His will.
Lets take an Old Testament law given to the Jews. Exodus 20:8 Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. * When He gave Moses the laws it had a lot to do with what they learned in Egypt. Much of it was to point to the true path. No I am not saying to ignore things like “Thou shall not murder”
In the New Testament [Covenant] the Church was given new information. Colossians 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:
We should always do our best to worship God in all our ways. But remember we lose much when we try to force people. Don’t lay extra burdens on others thinking your helping them. Guidance should be given with love.
God bless, Dan Beliveau
