Happy Thursday Saints.
Galatians 3:13 “CHRIST REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW BY BECOMING A CURSE FOR US, FOR IT IS WRITTEN, ‘CURSED IS EVERYONE WHO IS HUNG ON A POLE.'”
The Judaisers tried to use the law to prove that they were blessed. But the Apostle Paul used the same law against them to show them they were CURSED.
Deuteronomy 27:26 says, “GOD’S CURSE ON ANYONE WHO DOES NOT OBEY ALL OF GOD’S LAWS AND TEACHINGS.”
After Paul pointed out to the “FOOLISH GALATIANS” who were trying to keep the law, that they were actually CURSED because they’d failed to keep ALL of it – he proceeded to show them the only way for anyone to be set free.
Jesus is the only Person to fulfil the whole law. Not only did He live a perfect, sinless life, but He also
took the punishment that is supposed to be given to everyone who has broken the law.
He REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW. He paid the price for our sins. He settled the ransom for our punishment BY BECOMING A CURSE FOR US.
With His death on the cross, Jesus became our substitute. A sinless, undefiled, harmless, and holy Christ who was perfect and pure in every way – suffered the consequences of our transgressions.
We should ALL be CURSED for breaking the law, but Jesus lovingly and voluntarily took the wrath of God on our behalf. And now, “WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.”
The gospel truly is the best news ever.
Have a wonderful day enjoying your freedom from the curse of the law. If you believe in Jesus, you are NOT cursed! God bless, and lots’a love,
