Fear of God Devotional: The Law For Believers
How does a Christian view the law of God differently after being saved?
Jason Dohm explains in this video that for believers, the law does not condemn them. God has changed roles. For the unbeliever, who call “good” the things that God declares are evil, God is a righteous, holy, all-powerful judge who condemns them. He uses his law to bring condemnation.
For the Christian, God is now Father. You have been adopted into His family. Just as children desire to please their father, believers want to learn how to please God. His law is to teach you what pleases Him. God, through His Word and Law, communicates the things He loves and the things He hates. The law puts in writing what God calls as good.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NKJV) – “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”
