Sinai – Christianity – Covenant – Eternity…

Sinai – Christianity – Covenant – Eternity…

If Commandment Keeping were possible sufficiently to please the Father, Jesus would not have needed to suffer and die in your place (Galatians 2:21). The Christian is not under Law, Commandments, Edicts, ceremonies, days, dietary restrictions, but the redeemed in Christ are under grace (unmerited favor – a gift unattainable via human effort) through faith (trusting-believing) in Jesus as Lord (Romans 6:14; Colossians 2:16); therefore, the Christian does not worship Sinai or Law but the Christian is redeemed through faith and subsequent establishing covenant relationship, receiving the Holy Spirit as Guarantor of that covenant (Ephesians 1:13-14), Christian obedience naturally follows redemption via the Holy Spirit via the conscience via the daily process of sanctification (Galatians 5:16).

The futility of self-righteousness through Law,

Striving for obedience relevant to earning salvation is futility (Romans 3:20; Galatians 2:16; 3:10); obedience subsequent salvation is a natural outflow of the new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) via the Spirit via the conscience via the daily process of sanctification (Galatians 5:16).

Fruit of the Spirit – A superior form of behavioral modification,

You will know them by their fruits (Matthew 7:15-20); that is, the one who is in covenant relationship with the Father naturally demonstrates the “fruit of the Spirit” via the “new creation” in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17) which is a spiritual form of behavioral modification far superior to codified laws etched in stone or scratched upon parchment as these laws, their condemnation for sin, are easily rationalized away via subjectivity by the sin-nature; therefore, you will not enter into covenant relationship with the Father through your vain works of law keeping as you’re inherently a sinner by nature and the law mandates absolute perfection (Romans 3:23; Romans 8:1-2; James 2:10) but only by humbling yourself and trusting wholly in the righteousness of Jesus to save you by faith will you receive the imputation of Jesus’ righteousness over your life and be declared “not guilty” by the Father, forever, via covenant promise (John 3; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 8:12). There is no other Way (John 14:6).
