Case Dismissed!
Creflo Dollar

Are you a Believer who’s working diligently to fulfill the thousands of rules and regulations outlined in the Bible? You know, all the “thou shall” and “thou shall not” rules? If so, you’re probably exhausted and discouraged by now. You’ve probably realized you just can’t do it, even though you genuinely love God and desire to obey His Word.

If this scenario describes you, I’ve got good news for you today! You see, God never intended for you to follow a set of religious rules and laws that only lead to bondage. From the beginning, He intended for man to have a personal relationship with Him. In fact, the word “religion” was derived from a Latin word that means “a return to bondage.”

It’s true that there was an old law or covenant (the Mosaic law), which contained well over 600 laws. Under this covenant, people were subject to punishment and bondage when they violated the Mosaic Law. Despite its stringent requirements, the old Law was holy, perfect, and flawless. The only flaw was man’s inability to keep all those laws! In fact, the Law still has a purpose today. It’s a schoolmaster for the ungodly. The Law tutors unbelievers, showing them why they’re sinners in need of a Savior (1 Timothy 1:7-10).

Today, however, Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant, one in which God swore by Himself to bless us! Through His sacrifice, we have been freed from the demands of the Law. Romans 10:4 (NLT) states, “For Christ has already accomplished the purpose for which the law was given. As a result, all who believe in him are made right with God.” We enjoy a new and better covenant under what the Bible refers to as the dispensation of grace (Ephesians 3:2). We have been declared righteous by faith, not by works. We are led by the Holy Spirit, not rules and laws (Galatians 5:18, AMP).

Under this new covenant, you’re also saved from God’s anger (Romans 5:9). You don’t have to fear His wrath when you sin, because Jesus took your punishment and made you right in God’s eyes. He freed you from sin’s power, so you don’t have to participate in immoral behavior (Colossians 3:12).

Because of Jesus, who is our high priest under the new covenant, God’s laws are now written in our minds and hearts. “For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people” (Hebrews 8:10). The laws God wrote on our hearts include the law of faith, love, and the perfect law of liberty (James 1:25).

As Christians, your goal is to develop a relationship with Christ, not strengthen religion. So moving forward, remember this: The Law is obsolete for Believers today! Christ is the end of the Law! When you sin or miss the mark, you don’t fall from grace; you fall into grace! You’ve been liberated to walk in the freedom of the spirit, with no guilt or condemnation whatsoever! All your sins are forgiven; they have been put on the “Master’s Card!” All charges and allegations that were once leveled against you have been dropped! Case Dismissed!

“But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit” (Romans 7:6, NLT).
