Jenny the giraffe here with a bible study. Do you know the difference between law and grace? Read on:
NOT UNDER LAW
by Cecil Argetsinger
NOT GENERALLY TAUGHT, but of tremendous importance is the truth set forth in these six simple words: "Not under law, but under grace." They speak not only about two completely different and opposing systems by which God relates to His people here on earth, but they also speak of two separate and distinct periods of history. The "law" represents the manner of God’s dealings with the nation of Israel, while "grace" depicts the nature of His relations with the Church, the Body of Christ. The one, law, began with the covenant made between God and Israel on Mt. Sinai (Exodus 19:3-8) about 1500 years before Christ appeared on the scene. It ended with the death of Christ on the cross, for it was there He "blotted out the handwriting of ordinances [the law] that was against us, and took it [the law] out of the way, nailing it to His cross" (Colossians 2:14). The other, grace, began (generally speaking) with the same death and will continue until the Church is taken out of this world (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). In the Scriptures, the word "law" has two significations. Particularly, It has reference to the commandments and ordinances given by God through Moses to the nation Israel (Exodus 20, Deuteronomy 32:47). but it also includes any system or rule that regulates human conduct and by the keeping of which is supposed to make men right in the sight of God. Basically, the law is a works or merit system. It represents the efforts and good deeds of men by which they seek to please God and make themselves acceptable to Him. Grace, however, is in principle exactly the opposite of law, Grace represents not what man must do in order for a right standing before God, but rather asserts that God, entirely apart from any good deeds or works that man might do, freely accomplishes the same. Grace declares that righteousness with God is given, not earned. That "law" and "grace" are opposing principles is easily demonstrated. The law principle says "If you do good, I will bless you." That this was the nature of God’s relationship with Israel is clearly expressed in the covenant he made with that nation on Mt. Sinai. "Now therefore IF you will obey My voice, and keep My covenant, THEN you shall be a special treasure to me above all (other) people; for all the earth is mine" (Exodus 19:5). "If you will obey" is the prerequisite for "then you shall be a special treasure." How different is the principle of grace: "I have blessed you, now do good." Pure grace represents the manner by which God is dealing with the believer of this present age, the one who has heard the message of the Cross and has placed his faith and confidence in the Lord Jesus Christ. For him, his blessings are all of grace and only by grace. Under grace, blessings are never earned nor deserved. Good works have no part or place in the bestowal of God’s blessings--instead they are freely given. Under grace, the motive for right living arises out of gratitude and love for the One who suffered so much in the believer’s behalf. The law proved to be an "administration of condemnation." It did not and could not make people righteous before God. It could only prove their total sinfulness. The law could not bring men to God, it only proved them guilty before God (Romans 3:19-20). It takes imputed righteousness, the gift of grace, to make one right in God’s sight (Romans 8:1-2;3:24). But there doesn’t need to be any mistake. Being "under grace" provides no license to sin; grace rather prohibits sin. "For the grace of God that brings salvation to all men has appeared [on the scene], teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in this present world, looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour, Jesus Christ." (Titus 2:13) Indeed, the conduct that is set before the one who is "not under law but under grace" is a high and holy walk that is in keeping with his heavenly calling and position in Christ. "I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, " writes Paul, "beseech you that you walk worthy of the calling to which you have been called" (Ephesians 4:1). In our own strength, such a walk is absolutely and completely beyond any Christian to accomplish. We may no longer be "dead in sins" (Ephesians 2:1), but we are not under law--that is, not under its demands for righteousness. But as far as attaining righteousness in our own strength, we cannot, for we are spiritually unable. However, not only does grace forbid sin by the believer, as Romans 6:15 declares. It also frees him from the power of sin. "For sin shall not have dominion [exercise lordship] over you, for you are not under law but under grace." And the believer under grace has something never given under law. That something is, in all reality, Someone--namely the indwelling person and presence of God, the Holy Spirit. Nowhere in Scripture is it taught that the believer has attained to sinless perfection. The Christian life is a struggle, fierce and constant, not just against Satan and his forces, but against the evil and awful sin nature that is still present in every believer. This nature will only be removed when we are "forever with the Lord." But victory is assured because. under grace, the Holy Spirit has come to indwell every believer and to abide there as long as we are on this earth. The Christian may temporarily give in to sin, but the dominion of sin over the Christian is broken. The believer may, for a time, allow his sin nature to govern his activities, but, unlike the unbeliever, he is not controlled by it. Once we were sinners and walked according to the dictates of Satan, but now all is changed. We are new creations in Christ and have the privilege of living a life of righteousness by the power of the Holy Spirit. Sin may be in us, but is no longer our master, for we are "not under law, but under grace." Our Purpose and Mission:
The ministry of "Grace and The Truth" has the purpose of encouraging Christians to believe what God says. We are dedicated to helping Christians to a fuller knowledge of Him, and the Grace of God. Until we all come into the Unity, Ephesians 4:13 "Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:" OUR COMMISSION IN THE AGE OF GRACE IS: 2Co 5:16-21 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we [him] no more. Therefore if any man [be] in Christ, [he is] a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things [are] of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech [you] by us: we pray [you] in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Peanuts the elephant here.
Today I am in the country of Bangkok. I love to travel and visit different places. Here is what I found.
ake a step into Bangkok and sensory overload hits you like a wave. A million different scents and noises overwhelm you, making this city one of the most electrifying destinations in the world. Whether you’re devouring street food, wandering through an ornate temple or trying to navigate streets crowded with tuk-tuks, Bangkok is packed with adventure. Fun Fact: Bangkok has been the most-visited city in the world for the last three years, welcoming over 38.27 million tourists in 2018.
November — February Bangkok’s winter is its peak travel season, as the temperatures drop and make the humidity more bearable. But this also means crowds nearly double, clogging up the streets. Travel during the shoulder months, November and February, for the same cool temperatures but fewer tourists.
Traditional Thai Bringing together old and new, traditional and modern, chaos and serenity, Bangkok is a city of contrasts. Navigating these paradoxes can be confusing, but it’s in the in-between that you’ll find the true Bangkok spirit. Start with some traditional Thai experiences. Hop in a canopied wooden boat and cruise the Chao Phraya River. Yes, some of these ferries are touristy, but you’ll get to see some of the most famous sites without having to brave the foot traffic. Then head to the Museum of Siam for a look at what it means to be Thai. It’s your opportunity to get hands-on with this rich culture. When you’re ready for a break from the city, find your way to a Thai massage parlor. There’s no better way to unwind than by taking advantage of Thailand’s incredible signature massage services at stellar prices. Let’s Go to Market Bangkok’s many markets are major tourist draws, and you’ll find plenty of people sharing advice on which markets to avoid. But take their tips in stride and make the decision for yourself. Yes, the more popular markets can get crowded, but they’re still worth the trip if you go with that expectation set. Explore the overwhelming amount of souvenirs and handmade crafts at the Chatuchak Weekend Market, the largest weekend market in the world. Pick up fresh ingredients at Khlong Toei Market and flowers at Pak Klong Talad. When the sun goes down, sample fresh food under the colorful tents of the Ratchada Train Market. If you’re up for a drive (and don’t mind mingling with other tourists), check out one of Bangkok’s floating markets. Monumental Moments Bangkok’s many temples include sprawling, ornate complexes and quiet, hidden oases. Start at Wat Pho, one of the country’s largest Buddhist temples, which features a giant reclining Buddha that measures 46 meters long. Next, explore Wat Arun, the stunning Temple of Dawn set along the Chao Phraya River, and Wat Prayoon, a bell-shaped pagoda. There are plenty of other popular wats we could name, but some of the best spiritual spots can be found by wandering back alleys and following the incense.
visitbangkok | @connie_yang Looking Forward You’ll have difficulty escaping the crowds in Bangkok. The massive city holds few quiet corners. But if you want to explore some lesser-known destinations, you can still feel like you’re exploring off the beaten path. Stroll the Soi Nana shophouses in Chinatown, getting off the main thoroughfare to discover low-key bars and galleries. Then take a breath in Lumpini Park, a sprawling green space that will give you a break from the urban hustle and bustle. Find your way to the Thailand Creative and Design Center, where burgeoning creatives congregate in the former Grand Post Office Building. Shop around Papaya, a sprawling indoor antiques and furniture market. For a little extra fun, go out of your way to reach the Airplane Graveyard or get your thrills in at Siam Park City, an amusement park with lots of roller coasters and family fun.
"The local people of Bangkok and Thailand in general are pretty wonderful. It’s called the Land of Smiles for a reason. People are friendly, respectful, and go out of their way to help you and serve you whenever they can. The customary greeting I’ve encountered is for locals to press their hands together at their chest with a slight bow saying hello, welcome, or thank you."
#bangkokstreetfood | @journeyeengs More Bang for Your Buck Forget everything you know about normal mealtimes. In Bangkok, you eat whenever and wherever you want. Snacking on street food throughout the day will keep you satisfied without breaking the bank, and it’s a great way to try the numerous eats that Thailand is famous for. We’re talking more than just pad thai. You’ll find khanom bueang, tom yam, som tam, kuay teow and more. If you do want to treat yourself to a nice dinner, there are plenty of options. Le Du offers seasonal Thai favorites with a modern twist, while Issaya Siamese Club serves up exceptional cuisine in a stunning 100-year-old villa. When the sun goes down, find your way to a rooftop bar like Sky Bar at Lebua or Vertigo at Banyan Tree Bangkok for stylish cocktails and stunning city views.
Bedtime in Bangkok One of the best things about Bangkok being such a popular destination for visitors is that the accommodation options are plentiful and varied. For pure luxury, a stay at The Siam Hotel or The Peninsula Hotel will have you feeling like royalty, while chic travelers might find the urban cool Hotel Josh more their style. If you’re traveling on a budget, fear not. You can find clean rooms with amenities coming in between $10–$30 USD at Sivalai Palace and Smile Society Boutique Hostel. Note that the rules regarding Airbnb and short term rentals are complicated, so do a little research ahead of time to make sure you’re traveling responsibly.
bangkokthailand | @whereisone Cha-Ching Let’s Move "The tuk tuks (motorcycle type taxis) were the best way to get around the area. It is very cheap and you have the wind and air hitting your face as you travel. There are multiple ways for transportation including trains but I recommend this way because it's very fun and enjoyable!" – @djmeetch.
Hello, Benjamin the black lab here with a funny! You will have a laugh.
Judas Asparagus If you need a laugh today, then this should do it! A child was asked to write a book report on the entire Bible. This is amazing and brought tears of laughter to my eyes. I wonder how often we take for granted that children understand what we are teaching??? Through the eyes of a child: The Children's Bible in a Nutshell In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, 'The Lord thy God is one, but I think He must be a lot older than that. Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did. Then God made the world. He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet. Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden.....Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn't have cars. Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel. Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something. One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and some animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said they would have to take a rain check. After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some pot roast. Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat. Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh's people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable. God fed the Israel Lights every day with manicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments. These include: don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet your neighbor's stuff. Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more: Humor thy father and thy mother. One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the town. After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn't sound very wise to me. After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed up on the shore. There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don't have to worry about them. After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of The New. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always saying to me, 'Close the door! Were you born in a barn?' It would be nice to say, 'As a matter of fact, I was.') During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees, the Democrats, and the Republicans. Jesus also had twelve opossums. The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable after him. Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount. But the Democrats, the Republicans and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead. Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminum. His return is foretold in the book of Revolution. -------You must share this delightful story!
