LESSONS FROM THE SCRIPTURES

LESSON FROM THE SCRIPTURES

Romans 7:7, “What shall we say

then? [is] the law sin? God forbid. Nay, I had not known sin, but by

the law: for I had not known lust, except the law had said, Thou shalt

not covet.”

COMMENTARY

The law is not sin. It just makes us aware of right from wrong. When we know right from wrong and do wrong anyway, then we have sinned. Galatians 3:24 “Therefore the law was our schoolmaster [to bring us] unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith.” We would not have even known we needed a Saviour had there been no law. Galatians 2:16 “Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of

the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no

flesh be justified.” Moses’ law guided the Israelites for hundreds of years until Jesus. Jesus is the law of the Christians. The law of God is placed in our heart, if we are a Christian.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
