Paul_s Good" Test"

Have you ever noticed in Romans chapter 2 that the Apostle Paul used God's Law to bring to knowledge of sin? He boldly asked, "You, therefore, who teach another, do you not teach yourself? You who preach that a man should not steal, do you steal? You who say, "Do not commit adultery,' do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples? You who make your boast in the Law, do you dishonor God by breaking the law?" He personalized the Commandments. He appealed to his hearer's conscience. The work of the Law written on thier hearts. This is what Jesus did. There's a good reason for doing this. It's because the Law prepares the heart for grace. It brings the knowledge of sin. It magnifies the love of God in Christ. So, do the same. Imitate Jesus today. There goes another minute. Gone forever. Go share your faith while you still have time.
