The Wonders of Grace

The difference between “The Law” and “Grace” is the principle that governs it. The law places certain demands upon us which must be met. These demands are commandments which are considered to be “the works of the law”. If these works are not met, then we are disqualified from receiving the promises of God. The Law is powered and driven by our works. Grace on the other hand does not place a demand upon us, but rather it supplies the demand for us to make us qualified for the promises of God without any obligation. The demands (works) have already been met and finished by Christ Jesus. Grace is powered and driven by our faith in the finished works of Christ. A new era has dawned upon us by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and His death on the cross, which brought the end of the law under the Old Covenant and the beginning of a New Covenant – -The Age Of Grace- – a life of freedom and divine favour through the grace of God. The cross of Jesus Christ was the dividing line between the Law and Grace. It marks the commemoration of the end of an era (The Law), and the beginning of a new era (Grace). On the cross, He said, “It is finished” – John 19:30. Christ sacrifice on the cross was a fulfilment of the law and the full payment for our redemption. We are no longer slaves to sin, but sons of righteousness. We are now in the era of grace. We are no longer slaves by the law, but we are now sons by grace. We are now free from “The Law” and all its demands.
