Keeping Covenant Part 1.
of the Spirit ---New Window
by Tom Stewart
"That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ;
that we might receive the Promise of the Spirit through faith" (Galatians 3:14).
"The grand design of the Spirit's indwelling is to secure the perfect love,
complete obedience, or entire sanctification that has ALWAYS been demanded by the
Moral Law. '36
Master, which is the great Commandment in the Law? 37 Jesus said unto him, Thou
shalt love the LORD thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all
thy mind. 38 This
is the first and great Commandment. 39
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour
as thyself. 40 On
these two Commandments hang all the Law and the prophets'
This Law of Love is understood in the New Testament as the Law of Christ.
'Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the Law of Christ' (Galatians 6:2). Always, it has been man's imperative to understand how to submit
to this Law; and, now it is plain that a Covenant as old as Abraham has been fulfilled
through the New Covenant's giving of the Holy Spirit-- which, BY FAITH secures
for us perfect obedience to God. 'That the blessing
of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive
the Promise of the Spirit through faith' (Galatians 3:14)."
