UNDER THE LAW: keeping rules so you can be righteous in God’s sight

UNDER GRACE: all my righteousness comes as a gift from Christ
PROBLEM WITH RULES BASED APPROACH TO RIGHTEOUSNESS:
1. Creates a competitive spirit
2. Facilitates a judgmental attitude toward others
3. Encourages people to do the minimum
4. Returns a person to a “works righteousness” mentality
5. Fosters feelings of personal condemnation
6. Diminishes assurance of salvation
7. Robs the Christian of joy
CONSEQUENCES OF BEING THE BRIDE OF CHRIST
1. You must no longer live to please your old husband; the Law.

2. You live to please Christ.

3. You celebrate your union with Christ.

4. You rest in the fact it’s a permanent relationship and you are part of the family.

5. You recognize that you rule and reign with Christ

6. You bear fruit
THE OLD WAY (LAW) VS. THE NEW WAY (GRACE)

THE OLD WAY (LAW) VS. THE NEW WAY (GRACE)

THE OLD WAY (LAW) VS. THE NEW WAY (GRACE)
