    We are saved by God's grace. We are not under the law BUT OBEDIENCE TO GOD'S LAW AND HIS WORDS ARE MORE IMPORTANT TO MEDITATE THAN SACRIFICE. JESUS IS THE PERFECT OBEDIENCE TO THE FATHER BY FULFILLING THE SCRIPTURES. THE FAITH COMES ONLY BY HEARING THE WORDS OF GOD WITHOUT HIS WORDS IT'S IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE HIM WE WILL EASILY DROWNED IN OLD SIN. WE MUST KNOW HOW TO RECEIVE HIS WORDS .

    Comment*This chapter teaches us about standing fast in liberty, having faith in love and walking in spirit because we are not under the law we who believe in christ.
  • A WRETCH LOOKING FOR SALVATION
    Chapter 5 verse 1 , Just happened to be the verse of the day after my last relapse into drug addiction and gave me a feeling that the Lord was speaking to me . It gave me a renewed hope that this time I will finally walk the straight path that I long for . I hope that all who suffer addiction will see this and find a way to live in God's law and have peace in their lives.

    Jesus already took our sins, pain, worries, our unrighteousness and curse by his blood HE ALREADY MADE EVERYTHING NEW WHEN HE DIED ON THE CROSS. Our Job now is to believe Jesus that He is the Son of God, Follow Jesus and Live like Jesus . Avoid the Old SIN AND MUST DO REPENTANCE. PRAISE HIM AND THANK HIM EVERYDAY for HE IS WORTHY. JESUS THE ONLY JEHOVAH THE PROVIDER, OUR PEACE AMEN
