“Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us – for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree” – in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith” (Galatians 3:13-14).

Christ overcame the curse upon the law.  Those who claim the law as the essential thing dismiss Christ.  Friends, it is about your relationship with Christ.  The rest of it is quite secondary.  Do not go back into the territory of wanting what has already been overcome.  Live in the freedom which is yours through Christ and know that in Him alone is all hope and the promise that comes only through faith.

Scripture says that we are justified by faith apart from works of the law.  It is further said that we are saved by grace through faith in order to be eternally united with the Father.  Why settle for the elemental and no longer relevant things?  Come into the freedom of walking humbly with your Lord and Savior, Be guided by His goodness that you would know the truth and be forever set free.

Lord Jesus, You are the way, truth, and life.  Guide me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I would not wander as some do.  Keep me from the snares from which You have already freed me.  Help me now and always to know that in You alone is all hope and a future.  Lead me, O Lord, that I may follow in Your grace and mercy and live by faith according to the Father’s good and gracious will.  Amen.
