But when you believe in Christ, it is the end of the Law for you. Yet as a type, Moses stands as a symbol of the Old Covenant because he is associated with the Law, and the Law is always linked to the flesh. You are reckoning on your “unresources” but your eye is fixed on the christianiity person, yourself.

Be glad if it is a few hours.

And what did Paul say? On the other hand, your attitude can be that everything depends on God. The love and grace of Christ in us overflows in our worship and gratitude Romans Have you ever thought that you yourselves are our letter of recommendation? Either it is the old twisted form of life called “the flesh,” or it is the new life from the Spirit which will produce “the fruit of the Spirit,” Galatians 5: Who is sufficient for these things?

I have fallen again and all that time is wasted. The Law as a standard of life will never change.

Jesus did so too. It is a normal thing in human life. I was one of them. What kind of chemical compound will produce that? The Law makes that clear to us and nothing else will do it. A marriage is that kind of a covenant. Alive in us, Christ leads us into the good works He has prepared for us, both individually and corporately.


In that sense, the Law remains always.

About Ray Stedman Ray Stedman is one of the twentieth century’s foremost christianjty and biblical expositors. It is how we deal with it that makes the difference. They did not need it. The Enemy Without 2 Corinthians 4: That is why Hebrewstells us, “without faith it is impossible to please God” Hebrews This is authentic Christianity!

But life in the Spirit is never boring. The only thing that can please God is perfection, and the only one who can perfectly work is God himself.

They actually had the effrontery to suggest that these people write to Paul and suggest that the next time he came to Corinth he bring a letter of recommendation from the Apostle Peter, or James or John, or others of the real twelve, the real apostles.

Finally, discouraged and defeated, Paul went into the temple to pray. Now, if Philip had been an atheist and Jesus had said to him, “Give you them to eat,” he would have said the same thing exactly. This is the book I have wanted to write above all others. At any given moment you are operating as a Christian on one or the other of those two.

No longer merely on the edges of life, Christ is the center of everything. You expect success by virtue of something resident in you: Now christianoty quote that as, “Christ is the end of the Law.

You cannot cling to both; you cannot draw from both. Chrsitianity have to teach people that the problem with them is that they are counting on the wrong resource.

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us;[nothing coming from us, but] our sufficiency is from God[everything from God]. The Old Testament saints did understand and live by the New Covenant, even though it had not yet been historically laid. That is what is fouling up their lives.


Either he will love the one and hate the other or cling to one and despise the other,” Matthew 6: So both the introvert and the extrovert are wrong. New covenant people of God are followers of the living Lord Jesus Christ.

But the key is that you must reject the old, then you can choose the new. View More on Leadership This is where Christ leads us. This attitude produces the extrovert, the kind that reckons on his resources: Irritability, upset, impatience, anxiety, whatever it may be, immediately recognize it, renounce it as being no longer necessary to us, immediately flee to the Lord and lay aufhentic before him. The power of that Covenant is simply Christ in you, the hope of glory Colossians 1: Return to your source of strength, thank God for being shown what was wrong, and then go on.

To one a fragrance from death to death and to another a fragrance from life to life. To them God has chosen to make known among the Chriwtianity the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. But God does this so continually that we get the illusion that we are supplying it, that it is something inherent in us.

It’s a funny thing that truth that is really basic is very hard to discover because we take it for granted.
