Purge The Law And Serve In Grace

Purge The Law And Serve In Grace

Hebrews 9:14 (KJB) How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

This pointed question asked by Apostle Paul was aimed straight at the heart of zealous Jews who desired to strictly adhere to the law of God and strive to accomplish works rather than choosing to rest in the grace of God.  The grace of God is only possible by the precious shed blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ upon Calvary clearing.  His finished work is the only way regenerated hearts can serve God with a clean conscience.

Serving according to the law of God and dead works is not the same as serving God fruitfully with truth and grace made possible only with Jesus Christ’s shed blood sacrifice.  The law of God is forever fulfilled through the finished work of Jesus Christ.

God desires that every person, Jew or Greek, serve Him with forgiveness and cloaked in His undeserved grace.  This kind of spiritual service is necessary and not a work that any person can do for him or her self, but is one that is accomplished by Jesus Christ and humbly applied through the fuel of grace in regenerated hearts.
