Messages with tag - Legalism versus grace

Matthew (2013)
Sun, Jul 17, 2016
by Robert Dean
Passage: Matthew 21:33-43
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 57 mins 15 secs
Do we have to do something that impresses God to get His blessings? Listen to this lesson to see that trying to do impressive deeds for God is legalism, while grace is understanding that God does all the work and man only has to accept Christ as Savior. Hear a parable told by Jesus about a landowner and his vineyard and find out the significance of each concerning Israel and the Kingdom of God. See that Jesus is directing this parable to the religious leaders rather than all Israel and has nothing to do with Replacement Theology.

Is it legalism when we are told we should obey the commands of God found in the Bible?

Challenge yourself to become a committed, consistent disciple for all of your life.
