Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 8:13(KJV); In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away.
The Bible reveals to us that because of the new covenant, the old covenant is decayed, waxes old, and is ready to vanish away.
The Message Bible rendering of the same scripture is, “By coming up with a new plan, a new covenant between God and his people, God put the old plan on the shelf. And there it stays, gathering dust.”
The Law is on a shelf gathering dust. However, time and time again, some men and women of God pick it off the shelf, dust it, and present it to people as the newest revelation.
God does not want the church to feed on dust-coated revelations. He wants us to feed on dust-free revelation. This dust-free revelation is the Grace of God.
Dust, when understood by the scriptures, represents the workings of the flesh. For man came from dust and to dust he returns (Genesis 3:19).
The dust-free revelation, (the grace) has no connection to the working of the flesh but has everything to do with the working of God in a man.
While the law (the dust-coated revelation) leads to death because from the dust a man came and to dust he returns, the grace of God leads to everlasting life because His grace is eternal.
FURTHER STUDY: Genesis 3:19, Romans 5:17
While the law (the dust-coated revelation) leads to death because from dust a man came and to dust he returns, the grace of God leads to everlasting life because His grace is eternal.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank you for this Word. I have embraced your grace as the truth of my life and reality. Every day, I am conscious that it is you who works in me to will and to do according to your good pleasure. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
