Law or Love?

“Christ is no Moses, no exactor, no giver of laws, but a giver of grace, a Savior; he is infinite mercy and goodness, freely and bountifully given to us.” -Martin Luther

Honestly evaluate yourself: Is Christianity to you centered on what you do or what Jesus did on the cross?  If Christianity is a bunch of do’s and don’ts (law) then that makes it the same as any other major world religion.  Accepting the love God freely gave you (grace) however causes you to live out love through faith in Jesus.  Those stuck in a law-centered religion can’t understand this love-love relationship!  

For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ  (John 1:17, KJV).
