Law Commingled With Grace

Posted by peter - December 23rd, 2010

The world teaches “what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” by the precepts of men. But that is not what those who hear His voice will go by anymore. They no longer conform to the teachings and traditions of men, but are rather transformed by the “renewing” of their mind by the Holy Spirit, who dwells in them. “Conforming” is done from the outside in, while “transforming” is done from the inside out.

Isa 29:13 Wherefore the Lord said, For as much as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
