Correctly analyzing and rightly dividing the Word of God reveals to us numerous differences between the Law of Moses and the grace that Jesus Christ brought. Examples of those contrasts are the definitions of righteousness and condemnation under the law versus under grace. Under the law, righteousness came by our works; under grace, it comes through faith in Jesus Christ and His works. Grace makes us right with God not because of what we do, but because of our faith in what Jesus did. The law condemns us when we sin, and the law is what is preached from most pulpits. What was true under the law is no longer true under grace; the truth now is that our righteousness comes from Jesus, and we cannot sin it away, no matter what we do. When we cling to this knowledge and have faith in it, we mature spiritually.
