Galatians 3:10,11 “But those who depend on the law to make them right with God are under His curse, for the Scriptures say, ‘Cursed is everyone who does not observe and obey all the commands that are written in God’s Book of the Law.’ So it is clear that no one can be made right with God by trying to keep the Law. For the Scriptures say, ‘It is through faith that a righteous person has life.'”
Most of us who have been raised with a religious background have been taught that we need to obey the 10 Commandments so that God will accept us, and hopefully, if the good outweighs the bad, we will be accepted in heaven. But the reason why we have been given Scripture is so that we will know and understand what God’s will is. And clearly when we look at these verses, it doesn’t say anything remotely close to that thought! It says if you are depending on obeying the Law so that you are in right standing with God, you are under a curse. Because no human being can obey every single command perfectly and consistently, God provided The Way to be made right with Him, and that is through believing and accepting what Jesus Christ did for you. He shed His blood, died on the Cross and rose from the dead. He paid the FULL price of the penalty for our sins, that’s because we can’t pay for own sins. But just because it’s paid for, it doesn’t mean we can live any way we want without facing consequences for wrong living. But The Blood of Jesus gave us a chance at having a new life while we are alive on earth, and going to heaven when we die. He made it available for you! Just believe and accept it and that new life is yours!
“How precious is the life of Your Son, Jesus Christ, that when He poured out His blood to pay for my sins, it was more than enough to redeem my life, Abba. He paid the price so that now I belong to You. You saved me from living a tormented or sick or broken or loser’s life, and from eternal damnation. I claim the victory of the Cross as my inheritance! I claim a changed life for myself, in Jesus’ victorious Name, amen!”
