Not under the Law, but under Grace
Our Father in Heaven, in His infinite goodness, gave two choices for people to choose under the Law. You have a choice between life or death, blessings or curse. You can choose. The LORD gave the choices to His people to pick.
But our good Father also knew that we were the children of Adam and Eve, who chose death instead of life, curses instead of blessings, just because of one forbidden fruit. Like the prodigal son, when given a choice, we would happily press the “self-destruct” button, without realizing the eternal consequences that we have to face. So, in His eternal mercies, He sent His only Son and our elder Brother Jesus Christ.
Jesus is not the elder brother from the parable of the prodigal son. HE is the Brother born to help us in adversity (Proverbs 17:17). So, He became the fulfilment of the Law; He chose death and curse for Himself, so we, who are under His grace, have only two things left to choose: life and blessing. Let us choose life and blessings, because if you are under grace, you have no other choices left. Amen.
