Law or Devotion

May 9, 2011 Donna New

For if the inheritance is of the law, it is no more of promise: but God hath granted it to Abraham by promise. Galatians 3:18

There are two ways of receiving God’s blessing. One is to keep all the Old Testament Laws down to the detail. That would make life no fun and is literally impossible for any human being. It says so in the New Testament.

So what’s the alternative?  Is it any more pleasant than the first? It’s to believe and love God. If God were hateful and required penitence and humiliation constantly I wouldn’t want to believe or especially love Him.  I’d find another God.

But this God hugs and kisses me if I come home sorry for my sin. He even throws a party for me. If I have wounds from living life He pours wine and oil on them and makes sure I’m looked after. If I walk away and get lost He personally searches until He finds me because to Him I’m a priceless pearl.

This is the kind of God I could love and believe in. In fact to me He’s irresistible.  And belief and love are all He requires for blessing.  The hidden catch is that when you believe and love this God it changes you on the inside and you become a little more loving and forgiving each day.
