Lesson 4: The Gospel and the Law (Deuteronomy 11:1)Related Media
Can law and love go together? You don’t see much in the way of bumper stickers or refrigerator magnets highlighting mantras like, “I love my lawgiver!” or “Honk if you love law codes!” But a faithful Israelite in Moses’s day would have linked love and law. Obeying God’s law was an expression of love for Him. Pastor Daniel speaks specifically of this, saying, “To understand the fullness of God’s love and character and the hope of the good news of Jesus Christ, I need to understand the law.” In what ways is this true? 1) The law challenges me to love God. 2) The law reveals my sin. 3) The law justifies no one. 4) The law promises something greater. And finally, 5) The law demands we live not by works but by faith.
