2 Corinthians 3:1-3…Your very lives are a letter that anyone can read by just looking at you. Christ himself wrote it—not with ink, but with God’s living Spirit; not chiseled into stone, but carved into human hearts and lives —” (MSG/NKJV)

2 Corinthians 3:6 He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life. (NLT)

Old vs New Covenant

Rules are different than LIFE

Knowledge of good and evil, good and bad. Right and wrong OR LIFE Life/death, blessing/cursing. Choose life

1 John 5:12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.” (NLT)

Rules are different than TRUTH

What did Jesus say about knowing TRUTH

Titus 1:1 This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. (NLT)

Truth shows us how to live godly lives

Titus 1:10 For there are many rebellious people who engage in useless talk and deceive others. This is especially true of those who insist on circumcision (keeping the law) for salvation.” (NLT)

Circumcision or keeping the law or RULES for salvation

Titus 1:11 They must be silenced, because they are turning whole families away from the truth by their false teaching. And they do it only for money. (NLT)

Turns whole families away from Truth

Rules demand and stir either rebellion or pride. Rules in life

Love is a higher motive

Love Fulfils God’s Requirements

Rom. 13:8 Owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another. If you love your neighbour, you will fulfil the requirements of God’s law.

Rom. 13:9 For the commandments say, “You must not commit adultery. You must not murder. You must not steal. You must not covet.”a These—and other such commandments—are summed up in this one commandment: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” (NLT)

Rules are different than GRACE

Titus 2:11-13 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ, (NKJV)

Titus 2:14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.” (NKJV)

Grace’s instruction empowers from the inside
