God Never intended the Law to be used to redeem men.  The Law was a standard to show men their need for something more than their own discipline and independence to be in relationship with God.  The Law made it clear–men are not good at their core.  In fact, the more laws that were put in place, the more schemes and loopholes appeared to evade them.

 Men want to be independent of any authority–especially God’s.  Yet, when men trust God, as did Abraham, even against insurmountable odds, God completes his plan in their lives.  Men do not have to be perfect, they simply have to trust and follow his plan.  It really does not matter whether there are 10 laws or thousands–it is still a simple matter of faith.

 For us–it is whether we are willing to trust God enough to give up control of our lives. If we do, he will do a great work and we will see a life of wonder and amazement.  If left to do on our own, however, we will simply exist and find a meaningless and worthless existence that ends in eternal separation from him.  Trust and Obey if you truly want to Have a full and meaningful life.

God Bless You

 It was not through the law that Abraham and his offspring received the promise that he would be heir of the world, but through the righteousness that comes by faith. 14 For if those who depend on the law are heirs, faith means nothing and the promise is worthless, 15 because the law brings wrath. And where there is no law there is no transgression.

16 Therefore, the promise comes by faith, so that it may be by grace and may be guaranteed to all Abraham’s offspring—not only to those who are of the law but also to those who have the faith of Abraham. He is the father of us all. 17 As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.”[c] He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not.

18 Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.
