God: created a better way….
John 1:17 (KJV) “For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ”.
It can be a bit trying at times to determine the application in the word of God especially if you look at God’s interaction in the OT versus the NT and you get to wondering if you are doing it right.
It is a fair argument to want to do your best and be the best person in this relationship, hence an expectation that the Spirit of God who is planted within us when we give our lives to Him will do the work of correcting and leading.
But if you don’t know what is in the Word, it can be a problem knowing what to do or when He is prompting to go either left or right. Instructions are only as good as the theory involved in direction.
Saying this to say: many want to confuse believers on where they need to be and what they ought to be doing, but when Jesus came He brought something to the table that clarifies the argument: grace and truth.
