2 Corinthians 12:9 – “…My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness…”
It is wrong for any Christian to attempt to live the Christian life. And we are not asked to do so. The Word of the Lord says “it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me” (Galatians 2:20). This is the secret of living the Christian life. Defeat is not caused by less work, but by too much work. When we are working, God’s grace cannot come to us. Likewise, in our working too much, the life of the Lord cannot be manifested in us.
The New Covenant Law is not designed for men outside of Christ. The natural man cannot obey the New Commandment that Jesus gave. There is only one commandment to rule the New Creation, and that is to love one another even as Jesus loved us (John 13:34). That New Commandment made any other commandment absolutely unnecessary, for the man who walks in Love will never do wrong.
Someone asks, “Why is the Mosaic Law called the ‘law of sin and of death?” Because it was to govern spiritually dead men. The Law of the Spirit of Life (Romans 8:2) is to govern Recreated men. It is the Spirit of Love.
