eight: bold;" bgcolor="#F5F5C3">

The phrase, righteousness of the law, describes the perfection that we must have before we can have a relationship with God. God is perfect, therefore we must be perfect.

The law, here refers to the Mosaic law. The law spells out the requirements of perfection. But, we already know, that man is incapable of meeting those requirements.

Therefore, we need someone else who will stand in our place, and meet those requirements, but more than that, someone who will pay the price of our failure.

And of course that someone is Jesus Christ.

When Christ went to the cross, He had lived the perfect life. He was therefore, qualified to pay the price of sin in our behalf.

Walking according to the flesh, simply refers to a person trying to live their life, apart from faith in Christ.

Walking according to the spirit, refers to a person who is living their life, in accordance with the faith requirements of Christ. Namely, faith for salvation, as well as faith by means of a daily Bible study wherein we learn and grow up in our spiritual life.

 




Study [by instruction],

to show thyself approved [spiritually mature]

unto God,

a workman [student]

that need not be ashamed [ignorant],

rightly dividing [learning, understanding, discerning]

the word of truth [Bible doctrine].

If you can dream and not make dreams your master,

If you can think and not let thoughts narrow your views,

If you can meet triumph with disaster equally,

If you can learn and see your full meaning and purpose in life,

Then you can believe in Christ, learn Bible doctrine, and grow far beyond the potential that God has prepared for you.

These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
