Nullify the Law?

Romans 3:21-31

Every contest from the schoolyard to the courtroom, has someone who arbitrates on behalf of the integrity of the enterprise. In sports, decisions of the field judge, referee, or umpire are final. In court the judge’s decision is supreme.

As Christians we are responsible for either nullifying or upholding the law. “But now God’s righteousness has been revealed apart from the Law, which is confirmed by the Law and the Prophets” (Rom. 3:21). Jesus Christ is the faithful, supreme advocate of righteousness. Upholding the law is more than legalism; it becomes grace-filled and freeing, like a child who discovers he can do anything he wants if he acts within the limits of his parents’ will. Have you discovered the freedom of God’s righteousness?

    The reading for today was a good reminder for me. Upholding our local State and Federal laws are much easier when I am doing my best to uphold God’s righteous laws.
