Grace Reigns! Thank you brother for extolling the work of Christ, and for exhorting us to consider Him and what He has done.
Why would we go back to Sinai seeking to fulfil any of the law which he has so perfectly obeyed and paid in full on our behalf. A pleasing Aroma unto God - we rest in the Labour that He has performed.
'This is my beloved son in whom I am well pleased - hear ye Him!'
Now, out of appreciation for what Christ has done we cry out with the Psalmist..' What shall I render unto the Lord for all his benefits toward me? We run to do his commands out of love to Him - looking diligently to attend to all of Christ's instruction to us.
This is the New Covenant that He has bought with His own precious blood! Oh believe it friends! He is not standing to threaten with Sinai's terrors. He has won our hearts by His love, and it is because we love Him that we keep His commands - not by the threats,and terrors of the Law. Let us leave it as obsolete, like Scripture tells us,embrace the New Covenant, and set our affections on things above where Christ is!

Great Sermon! Very well put! Encouraging message for those weighed down by guilt of coming up short! The Captain of our salvation didn't!
