Jesus the Christ, the new covenant, and the Christian

Post by JacobMartinMertens » Sun Jan 31, 2016 8:28 pm

The mark of a Christian is that he lives by faith. The mark of the Christian is the life he lives by faith. He is obedient to God being obedient to Jesus Christ, God’s Son.
John 1:41, 49 NASB - 41 He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, "We have found the Messiah" (which translated means Christ). 49 - Nathanael answered Him, "Rabbi, You are the Son of God; You are the King of Israel."

Cursed is he who is under the law, who doesn't fulfill all that is written therein.

The problem is not with the law or with those who observe or obey it. A problem cannot be found here.

The problem is our sinful nature, and it cannot be justified by Law which brings out our sin.

People sinned before the Law, but when the Law came it made sin utterly sinful. I translate that as it shows sin for what it is.
