The Law Does Not Mix with Grace

Date Preached: March 12/2017
Sermon Text: Colossians 2:20-23
Title: Law Doesn't Mix with Grace

As Christians, we sometimes have trouble accepting that we are saved by grace. Sometimes we act like we are still slaves rather than resting in the freedom we have as citizens of the kingdom of God. It is easy for us to forget that we are saved and walk by grace. It is easy for us to somehow think that our own good works contribute to our standing before God in some way. But to try to live by rules and regulations is inconsistent with who we are in Christ by God's grace!  Indeed, trying to keep the law hinders and limits ones ability to live by faith and to walk in God's grace. Let's guard ourselves from trying to mix the law into grace.
