In a continuation of the conversation regarding law and morality, it is imperative to know how then to respond and what to do. How do we, as Christians live before God, in view of His mercies, to be empowered walking out a life that lines up with what God says? The Cross of Jesus Christ empowers us to do this. We need courage today. In the decisions that we make on a daily basis, do we live in order to please mankind, or do we live in order to please God?

Hearing about good things to do is not enough. Repeatedly being caught up in the act of doing good things is not the right thing. We must seek out the heart of God and respond accordingly to what He would desire for us to do. As we collectively stand and respond, as the Body of Christ, we will see a dramatic shift.
