Words of Comfort: Take hold of the Law.


As a Christian, you need not dread the Law. If you are in Christ, the Law will not fall upon you (see Rom. 8:1). So take hold of it and do what Jesus did in Mark 10:17. Let the world know that lust is adultery in God's sight (see Matt. 5:27,28), and that a holy God considers hatred to be murder (see 1 John 3:15). When we cast down the rod of the Law (as Moses cast down his rod), it helps to convince the lost that the gospel of salvation is from God. Once they are "convinced of the Law as transgressors" (James 2:9), they are ready for the good news of the gospel-that they can be saved from its bite because the rod has already struck the Savior for our justification.
