There is much confusion in Christendom concerning the right and proper use of the Mosaic law. Some believe that the moral laws are applicable to Christians; others, that none of it applies. A small minority hold that all of it must be observed. The law came in so that offences might abound (Rom. 5:20); it addresses itself to the flesh and thoroughly condemns it. What the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God has done another way. No longer are we pursing our own righteous standing before God. We are freely justified by His grace and we stand before God where Christ stands. We have a new life in Christ, and we are to live in the good of that life in the power of the Holy Spirit. Our object is no longer self but Christ. Whereas the law said "do and live;" grace has given us life that we may live and do.

Many who read the Psalms overlook the proper dispensational setting into which the Spirit of God has put them and import the Christian's standing, experience and hope.

Those whom the Lord calls and uses in His service are those who have willingly yielded themselves to Him as His bondmen. They are freedmen; but more than that, they are bondmen....The great fact is that the power of His love makes us willing servants.

“But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept” (1 Corinthians 15:20).

When the Lord Jesus rose from the dead, we see in today’s verse that He became the “firstfruits” of them that slept. What does that mean? It means that He was the first man to rise from the dead with a glorified body, never to die again. Those who died and were raised from the dead, like Lazarus and the son of the widow of Nain (Luke 7:11-18), got old and eventually had to die again. But the Lord Jesus will never die again.

His resurrection is the absolute guarantee that you and I, as Christians, will also have glorified bodies, fit for heaven, and that will never decay or get old. If we die before the Lord comes, we will get our changed bodies when He comes. If we are still alive when He comes, we will be changed “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye” (1 Corinthians 15:52). The resurrection of the Lord Jesus is the assurance of our salvation, and the assurance of our resurrection with glorified bodies. “As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:22).

Growing in Grace
“And he (Pharaoh) said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: but who are they that shall go? And Moses said, We will go with our young and our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go” (Exodus 10:8-9).
When Moses and Aaron began to speak to Pharaoh, telling him that he must let the people of Israel go, they told Pharaoh that they were going to sacrifice to the Lord in the wilderness. As we know, Pharaoh consistently refused to let the people go, in spite of the terrible plagues that the Lord brought upon the land of Egypt. Finally Pharaoh said that he would let the people go, but proposed various conditions to Moses and Aaron, as to who should go, and how far they should go, and whether their cattle should go, etc.
In our verse today, we see that Pharaoh asks the question as to who would go. Moses clearly said to him that they must all go — men, women, and children, as well as their cattle. If we were to read the following verses, we would find that Pharaoh wanted only the men to go, and leave their children in Egypt. This was a very bad suggestion, and Moses quite properly refused to consider it. Then the Lord allowed further plagues on the land of Egypt. Eventually Pharaoh did let the people go, but not until the firstborn of every family that was not protected by the blood on the door, had been killed on the night of the Passover.
We have seen before that Egypt is a type of the world around us, that does not know the Lord. This world may think it is all right for Christian parents and older ones to worship the Lord, and to be separate from this world, but the world wants to get you younger ones, if it can. You have energy and vigor, and the world wants you! Satan is now the god and prince of this world, and if he can attract young people, he is very pleased. He wants any of us, but he makes a special attempt to snare young people. Be thankful if your parents are like Moses, who will not allow you to be left in Egypt, so to speak. Be thankful if they insist that you go with them to worship and serve the Lord.

God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
God … hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; to wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God. For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.1
God is love. In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another.2

Comfort of the Scriptures
“I have gone astray like a lost sheep: seek Thy servant; for I do not forget Thy commandments” (Psa. 119:176).
Before we were saved by God’s grace, it is written of us that “all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all.” But now, thank God, it is said of us who know the Savior that “ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls,” that One who says that “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me: and I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of My hand.” But though we are forever safe in His fold, we still have the capacity to go “astray like a lost sheep” and to act like an unsaved person acts, for we still have within us that fleshly nature common to all men, in which “dwelleth no good thing.” Therefore we are exhorted to “put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfill the lusts thereof.” But, thank God, when we who know Him go “astray like a lost sheep,” “our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,” calls us back to His fellowship, when “we confess our sins” to Him.
I’m safe forever in His fold;
No power can snatch me away;
Yet He keeps watch over my soul,
To restore me when I stray.
