The Purpose Of The Law
Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. ~ Exodus 19:5-6
Before we could OBEY His voice, we ought to learn to discern and agree with His Law. The prophet Amos asked: how could two parties walk together unless they have a point of agreement (Amos 3:3).
Moses’ Law is a set of instructions which God gave to Moses in order to govern the young nation of Israel. It includes material to establish civil laws as well as their constitution. Bearing that in mind, Moses’ Law no longer carries a threat of punishment for believers today, but functions as a guide and personal discipline towards abundant living.
