BY LAW OR BY GRACE? *
*By Pastor Bob Hanna*
*
Over time, there has existed constant conflict among denominations and
sectarian organizations re the eternal destiny of man and the path
toward the goal. Many are convinced that faithful keeping of the ten
commandments is sufficient to open the door to paradise. Others believe
that a mixture of human endeavor and divine faith will accomplish the
purpose. God gives us the clue to our ability to qualify on the strength
of our own efforts. "We are all as an unclean thing, and all our
righteousness are as filthy rags" (Isaiah 64:6). The apostle Paul
revealed to the Jews the insufficiency of law keeping for salvation as
he preached in the synagogue, presenting their Messiah as the only way
of salvation: "By Him [Jesus Christ) all that believe are justified from
all things, from which; ye could not be justified by the law of Moses"
(Acts 13:39).
Of course, the Israelites, like so many people today, continued to rely
on their own performance despite Paul's revelation. "For they [Israel]
being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish
their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the
righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness
to everyone that believeth" (Rom. 10:3,4). Peter, addressing the
Sanhedrin, announced, "Neither is there salvation in any other [than
Jesus Christ]: for there is none other name under heaven given among
men, whereby we must be saved" (Acts 4:12).
The law was once a part of the salvation formula, but never was it the
vehicle. It served only as affirmation of faith, proving sincerity and
dedication. It was always by grace through faith that salvation was
obtained. In the dispensation of the grace of God, the law is no more in
force. Christ has fulfilled the law, "Having forgiven you all
trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against
us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to His cross" (Colossians
2:13,14). Paul writes, "Sin shall not have dominion over you; for ye are
not under the law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14).

Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery,
which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created
all things by Jesus Christ
