The Mercy of God

There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:

That the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.

Romans 8:1-4

Our heavenly father has freed us from the bondage of the law of death – the perfect sacrifice of his son has covered all the penal demands for salvation: How blessed we are to be given the gift of salvation, wearing the flesh of the fallen man which leads all men to fall short of God’s legal demands for salvation.

How fortunate we are to have kept the laws of Christ and his prophets for guidance: How blessed is a nation to have the very word of God for instruction. How merciful is our God to dispense such laws without the old fears of spiritual condemnation for transgression.

How insufferable are those who condemn the good and holy law of our God; Who blaspheme our Lord and profess a doctrine of lawlessness and sin.

Do not be fooled; The unrighteous man who dishonours God with lawlessness surely will live to regret his decisions, both in this temporal world and in the afterlife : The sinful ways of man, resulting in such cruelty and harm in our world may only be properly suppressed with the vigorous application of God’s law.
