The Law’s Blessing and Curse [Bible Reading 2/28 Week]
In Moses’ farewell address, his final instructions to the children of Israel, he explained how God had given them the law for their own good, and he also claimed that the requirement of the law was total perfection. Obedience to God’s law would bring blessing, but disobedience would bring God’s curse. As believers, we recognize the law as a good gift of God, but we rely on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to save us from the penalty for our disobedience.
