Why do I have such a hard time remembering the graciousness of God in the midst of His discipline? For some reason, I always think that every lesson He is teaching me has to be harsh and painful. I know that there is a balance and that He never promised life would be easy. But I tend to be all or nothing in my rememberance of God; all Old Testament law or all New Testament grace. But as Jesus said,
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. -Matthew 5:17
And as John stated,
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. -John 1:17
With that being said, I think this post is less of a statement and more of a question.
How do you practically comprehend and incorporate this law fulfilled through grace into your everday life?
