What does the law of God require? If we want to live according to His Word, what must we do? The answer is as simple as it is difficult. The law of God requires our complete and perfect obedience to the Lord at all times. What is easy to define is far from easy to live. In fact, we can never do it. We can obey sometimes in some ways, but every one of us will fail to always obey perfectly.
Perfect obedience means no lapses. For this reason, every one of us is guilty of breaking the law of God. If not for the redeeming blood of Jesus, we would be eternally condemned. God’s law is perfect; we are not. But in Jesus, the holy God and Creator of everything sees us as perfect.
