Born Under the Law

Description

The Bible teaches repeatedly that every human being who ever lived stands arraigned before God, the Judge. Without divine intervention, every case would turn out the same.

When an accused person first appears in court, it is called an arraignment. It is there that the formal accusations are brought forth.

The Bible teaches repeatedly that every human being who ever lived stands arraigned before God the Judge. Without divine intervention, every case would turn out the same. The Judge, who is also the Maker of all, has pure and holy expectations of all. His law, his will, was made known to all. All have sinned against it. All are guilty.

The incarnation of Jesus made possible a divine substitute for all of us. He entered the “game” like all of us, subject to the law’s commands and curses. “When the time had fully come, God sent his Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law” (Galatians 4:4,5).

What a gracious act of humility! The Co-Creator of the universe submitted to the rules of others for the sole purpose of giving you his perfect record. By faith you may claim his holiness as if it were your own. Through faith it now is your own!
