Three Reasons the New Testament Gives us Commands In Light of Living Under Grace…

Here are three reasons the New Testament still gives us commands [in light of the liberty given by grace]:

  2. Obedience to the commandments limits the damage of our sin.
  3. Disciplining ourselves to practice certain behaviors helps us develop a love for them.
