The incredible difference between the Old covenant of Law and the New covenant of grace is a mystery I will be writing about in my ensuing notes on Law vs. Grace Series, to throw light on God’s goodness towards people and the purpose of His new covenant. Many consider what separates the old covenant of law and the new covenant of grace is the blank page between the book of Malachi and Mathew. It sounds very funny, but you must understand it is one of the unknown mysteries in Christianity, which is hidden from the body of Christ, due to our emotional attachment to religious dogmas, wrong teachings, Church traditions that limits us from enjoying God’s best for our lives.

The law tells me how crooked I am. Grace comes along and straightens me out. – D.L. Moody 

THE LAW IS IMPERSONAL: It shows our place of inability to access the thoughts and ways of God, to be able to walk in alignment with Him. The old covenant folks could not connect personally to the loving, prosperous, whole and Fatherly heart of God. Only, selected few were able to connect with God from time to time to show His intent

others. To the Old Covenant saint, the Lords say; “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8, 9 NKJV)

GRACE IS PERSONAL THROUGH THE INDWELLING HOLY SPIRIT: Grace came to show the heart of the Father, that individually we may know the very thoughts of God. God’s thoughts are no higher than our thoughts because His Spirit lives on the inside of us permanently with the ability of the mind of Christ to know the mind of God. Hallelujah!!

“But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. (I Corinthians 2:10-12, 16 NKJV)

The New Covenant believer does not live a pointless and hassle life of walking into the unknown; trying to find fulfillment in life through human standards, which are practically based on self efforts and will power. Will power and self-dependence is a curse of the law, which always leads to catastrophe but a profitable life of purpose and direction is a fruit of the New Covenant through Christ….because of the capacity through the Holy Spirit, to download heavens thoughts in every situation to reign victoriously on earth, through Christ.

Beloved, my prayer for you today is that, you will not lean on your own understanding but be guided by the supernatural wisdom of God to effectively navigate through life effortlessly ====> 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, (2 Peter 1:2-3 (NKJV)

MemorizationMy 5 year old daughter is in a Christian school and one of the beautiful things they do in her school is to help the kids to be well versed in the Bible through scripture memorization in diverse ways. I can never forget her first scripture she learned to memorize as a three year old as long as I live. This scripture verse sticks so well into my heart due to the way she would confess it as a kid. In this verse, we are instructed by the Holy Spirit to be kind, tenderhearted and to be forgiving towards one another in all of our dealings with men – Ephesians 4:32 (ESV) Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Beloved, do you loved to be forgiven, receiving kindness in so many ways and appreciate tenderhearted people? I heard a big YES in my ears already! Do you struggles to do the same unto others? The depth of our understanding of how much God loved us and forgave us when we didn’t even deserve it, will soften our hearts in loving others in whatever capacity we find ourselves. (See John 3:16, Romans 5:8)

Do you know that we live in a society where many people don’t understand the value of relationships and therefore treat people like a junk? You don’t love and appreciate 394123_2100521892485_1828561381_1323881_848976779_nsomeone because they’re perfect, you love and appreciate them in spite of the fact that they are not.  “Perfection” is a deadly fantasy – something none of us will ever be.  It is only in Christ we are made perfect. So beware of your tendency to “fix” someone when they’re NOT broken.  They are perfectly imperfect, just the way they should be.

The support you can gather from good friends, groups, family and mentors is formidable. The hope and encouragement you can give them in return is also very vital, even your mentors and those you look up to always needs a little encouragement and love. We were created for relationship with God vertically and horizontally with men in an unconditional atmosphere of love and acceptance. No matter where you’re coming from and what has happened to you through your dealings with people, you don’t have to cut yourself from people and live isolated minding your own business.

Friends are, of course invaluable – they help you both to create and recreate. People who love us for what we are and not what we have already done are great support when we are trying to do and be more. One great key to walking into divine purpose is learning to discern the nuggets of gold in men with rough outer dispositions. Many missed great access to the realm of their destiny because they could not recognize their helpers and treat them like aliens because of their prejudice mentality.

Relationships are not accidental. If God want to use you to impact your world, He has to involve people into your life to bring His will to reality. Satan also operates through this same principle in a very diabolical way; if the devil wants to destroy your life or fizzle the purpose of your life, he releases negative people into your life or create unnecessary tension between you and the people who influences you. (Your Parents, Boss, Pastor, Friends, Wife, Husband, neighbor, Employees. etc.)

Value people more than the things of this world and learn to maintain relationships through thick and thin. A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a imagesCAF2TDO1$20.00 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?” Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this. He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air. Well, he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground. And started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty. “Now, who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air.

My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20. Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way. We feel as though we are worthless. But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value. Friends also fall into this same category, and I don’t think they lose their value to be treated as trash.

Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you and yours are still priceless to those who DO LOVE them. The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, But by WHO WE ARE. “You are special, make others feel the same – Don’t EVER forgets it.”
