Christians Still Hear the Law and Are Called to Obey It, but There is Still a Difference…

Christians still hear the law and are called to obey it, but as “the reasonable service” of their adoption as royal heirs, not as the condition of their receiving it.  One becomes a beneficiary of the estate on the basis of another family member’s achievements, received through faith, and then follows the “house rules” not as a way of gaining or keeping the inheritance but as a proper way of responding to our new surroundings in a new family.
