One of the awesome indicators of Christians truly living under the New Covenant is that they are not legalistic. Romans 7:6 says "we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the spirit, and not in the old way of the written code." The ten commandments and the associated regulations were the old written code. But under the new covenant we are serving by following the Holy Spirit.
2nd Corinthians 3:6 says that believers in Jesus are "ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life." Unfortunately, many Christians today live under the legalism of the old covenant. Check yourself today. Do feel like the letter of the law is killing you? Or do you live by the Spirit and experience life? It’s a choice. Choose a life led by the Holy Spirit and you will experience a new way of serving God.
