I always found it interesting, why the Bible is split into two, why there is an Old Testament and a New Testament. Behind these testaments, stand a covenant. I like to think of these covenants as being a model for our relationship to God. In what position are we in relationship to God. It is important to understand these models and how they are different.
On the one hand, the law makes people’s lives bearable, humane. On the other hand, the law makes all people sinners and transgressors. It is the law that reveals to the person that there is a force that is stronger than his mind and will, constantly pushing him to transgress the law. A person understands that to live by the law is good. However, to always fulfill the law contrary to desire and want – does not work out. Hence the person experiences pain, shame, and humiliation. He would like to be good, kind, truthful, but great strength and battle with oneself is necessary. And so the question is: with whom does man battle? Against whom does man use great force, and yet still turns out to be defeated?
With the body of Christ, we died for the law of the letter, that is, for the law of Moses, the Old Testament, which kills and condemns, and it is impossible to be saved by it today. It is written: “For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth” (Romans 10:4). If one does not understand this – does not understand the end of the law – they can never be righteous, the law will never allow it!
