Gal. 3:13 But Christ has rescued us from the curse pronounced by the law. When he was hung on the cross, he took upon himself the curse for our wrongdoing. For it is written in the Scriptures, "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree."

It is very clear that it is impossible for man to keep the Law of God. No one can by his sheer will power live out perfectly the law’s demands. Every one of us is guilty of law breaking. We are all sinners in God’s eyes.

God intentionally gave us a law no one could keep. He made sure that no one could be made righteous by his own efforts. He made sure that no one could bypass the cross and make it to heaven. Disobedience to God’s command to obey is always sin. We are cursed by God without a Savior.

But, we have a Savior! Jesus died in our place. He took upon himself our death sentence. He set us free from the certain death the law demands. His life and death perfectly satisfied the just demands of God’s holiness against sin. Jesus removed the barriers that keep unholy man from have a relationship with a holy God.

Let us never take our salvation for granted or let it grow old to our souls. Let us always give thanks to Him who saved us. Let us always live lives of gratitude for He is worthy.
