Unlimited: The Gospel Is Better Than Law

You’ve heard it said that the Gospel is better than law – let’s unpack why this is the case.

The law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ (John 1:17, NKJV).

Any religion that eclipses the Cross of Christ by the Mount of Sinai is a false religion; in whatever church it may happen.

The Gospel Is Better Than Law

  • The law says, “Do this and you will live.”
  • But the Gospel says, “Live and you will do.”
  • The law says “Pay me what thou owe.”
  • The Gospel says, “I freely forgive you everything”.
  • The law says, “The wages of sin is death.”
  • But the Gospel says, “The gift of God is eternal life.”
  • The law says, “The soul that sins shall die.”
  • The Gospel says “Whoever believes in me, though he were dead, yet he will live.”
  • The law says, “Get yourselves a new heart.”
  • The Gospel says, “I will give you a new heart.”
  • The law says “You will love or else.”
  • The Gospel says “Here is love: not that we’ve loved God, but that He loved us and gave Himself a sacrifice for our sins.”
  • When the law was given at Mount Sinai, 3,000 people died in a matter of days.
  • When the Gospel was proclaimed at Pentecost, 3,000 people lived.
  • Three thousand sermons on the law won’t convert one person.
  • One sermon on the Gospel will convert 3,000.
