“but only a new creation. Peace and mercy be to all who follow this rule and to the Israel of God.”
Brothers and Sisters,
I was the worst of the worst.
My job was to persecute all who followed Jesus. I was always on the lookout for anyone who was breaking ‘the law’.
Then I meet Jesus. “What are you doing Saul?”, knocked me off my high horse.
Laws can’t create love.
Jesus ‘s laws were different.
Jesus’ laws were offering, peace and mercy, not fear and punishment.
So, brothers and sisters let me tell you, “It, the law, doesn’t matter. What matters is how we live the laws of Jesus as a new creation, with ‘peace and mercy’.
That is why we have free will.
The choice is ours.
Your brother Paul,
