Jesus Christ Never Broke God’s Law
Construction Zone 7: God's Law
Why is it so important that Jesus Christ obeyed the Ten Commandments perfectly?
Because Jesus Christ is God, His obedience was perfect; and His righteousness can be ours by grace through faith. Romans 5:19b – By one Man's obedience many will be made righteous.
This Truth Makes
If God’s standard is perfection, and we have miserably fallen short of that standard, then we are in big trouble! That is what God’s Law teaches us. But when we understand that Christ did measure up to God’s standard of perfection and that His perfect righteousness can be put on our accounts, we learn that we can be accepted by God – in Christ!
We can have Jesus’ righteousness only through faith in Him. This is why the Bible says: “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6).
