The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. Psalm 19:7
Many mistakenly identify the law as a means of justification, rather than a mirror which reflects man’s sinful condition and inability to save himself.
The Bible is clear concerning the purpose of the law specific to salvation:
“Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.” Romans 3:19
Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin. Romans 3:20
Wherefore the law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by faith. Galatians 3:24
The law of God does not save us, but rather shows us our guilt before God and need of a Savior.
According to the scriptures,
“There is none righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:10
“There is none that doeth good, no, not one.” Romans 3:12
“All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;” Romans 3:23
Sin is defined as the “transgression” or breaking of God’s law (1 John 3:4). Any honest person must admit that they have sinned, do sin and will sin in thought, word and deed. Truly, “there is not a just man upon earth, that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Ecclesiastes 7:20
Those who place their trust in their obedience to the law, are trusting in the very thing that condemns them before God. Failing to understand that,
If the law must be kept at all, then all the law must be kept.
A partial obedience is insufficient, a perfect obedience is necessary.
For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is every one that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them. Galatians 3:10
For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law. Galatians 5:3
For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all. James 2:10
It’s abundantly clear that the law of God demands perfection.
Thankfully, the perfection which God requires, He himself provided.
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. 2 Corinthians 5:21
The sinless Son of God, Jesus Christ, died on the cross for your sins, was buried and rose again the third day according to the scriptures (1 Corinthians 15:3-4).
This sole sufficient sacrifice satisfied the wrath of a Holy God once and for all.
The moment an individual believes on Christ, trusting Him alone, the righteousness required is imputed unto them. God Himself provides the perfection that was not possible for man.
Romans 3:21-22 says,
21 But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;
22 Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe:
Friend, you can’t be right with God without God’s righteousness!
Understanding our own imperfection and the impossible standard of the law, there is only one logical conclusion consistent with scripture:
Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law. Romans 3:28
The question was put forth in Acts 16, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” to which the answer was given, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.”
The sole condition for salvation from the penalty of sin is faith in Jesus Christ.
The old hymn reads,
Not the labor of my hands
Can fulfill Thy law’s demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All could never sin erase,
Thou must save, and save by grace.
No amount of self-reformation, human effort or good works can ever satisfy the demands set forth by the law. Salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
Trust in Jesus Christ today and receive the forgiveness of sins!
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16
If you've placed your faith in Jesus Christ, you can now confidently declare "I'm saved and on my way to Heaven". Take a moment to thank God for giving you eternal life!
