Law vs Grace

This subject of Law vs Grace is one of the main themes found in the New Testament, especially in the Apostle Paul’s letters. Based on my experience interacting with and ministering to people, I have come to realise that many believers do not know how to understand what the Apostle Paul was saying.


For example,


Romans 6:14 “For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.” KJV


It is clear from the context that Paul was explaining two opposing ways to live, one being a slave to sin and the other free of the power of sin.

Paul also mentions in when we live by the Spirit of God we are not under the Law.


For example,


Galatians 5:16-18 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.” KJV


If you would search through the whole New Testament for any place where Paul mentions “being under the Law” and “living by Grace” or “Living/walking by the Spirit”. You will come to realise what was explaining, he was contrasting two opposing ways to live for the Lord.


Being led by the Holy Spirit or being led by your flesh.


I highly recommend Derek Prince’s teaching on Law vs Grace for further study on this subject.
